The AFRICA CEO FORUM organizes the Women in Business Annual Leadership Meeting, in partnership with ESSEC Business School, which is taking place on 2 and 3 July in Paris. This event will gather 150 of the African private sector’s most influential women, with a twofold objective: create the most influential network of African women leaders and offer them a unique high-level networking and personal development experience.Download the brochure
Female leaders must seize opportunities to grow their networks and collaboration opportunities with other leaders across the African region.
Even if we’re constantly on the go, it’s essential to know how to take the time to look at our habits, to constructively call ourselves into question, and identify our strengths as well as those areas in which we need to improve to more widely exert the influence of our leadership.
Women’s networks are not only about business ties; they are what gives the woman the anchor to be an impactful leader. A woman is defined by the strength of her relationships and not her position.
In 2100, Africa will represent 40% of the world’s population. Without the participation or effective contribution of women, the continent’s economic development will be compromised. African women are the future of Africa.
The programme, developed in partnership with ESSEC Business School, is structured around three main themes.
Creation of influential networks
- Masterclasses on setting up successful networks
- Collaborative workshops to build an Africa-specific model
High-level personal development
- Inspiring leadership stories
- Customized personal development workshops
Developing a business culture
- Sectoral meetings to discuss common issues
- Networking with African and international leaders
