While the achievements of most African women in International affairs, politics, global institutions and board room positions made it clear that significant strides have been made in terms of punching through the ‘brass ceiling,’ considerable work still lies ahead, especially with the need to form formidable partnership and build on existing collaborations among top brass, trailblazing women from the armed forces, government and industry technology, intelligence, civil service, civil societies, business and corporate sector with a blend of regional and global perspective coming together to share informed opinion and guidance whilst facilitating open debate and top-level networking with fellow industry colleagues and peers, a platform that enables women professional to springboard ahead, counts and be counted.
