Rwanda: Women’s Learning Expedition #AWMWLE2018
May 24 - May 26R27500
The African Women’s Movement (AWM), is a non-profit company founded and headquartered in South Africa. The organization is lead by young spirited women and the mission is to prepare emerging women leaders to occupy leadership roles of influence and power. At AWM, we believe all key-decision making leadership structures should be women and youth inclusive to cater for the diverse talents and interests of our society. We refer to such structures in business, government, corporate as well as the arts as key in achieving the ideals of the African Union’s (AU) Agenda 2063.
Women’s Learning Expedition 2018
Rwanda is the first country in the world to have more than 50% female members of Parliament (at 64%) and the only African country in the top ten of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) 2017 Global Gender Gap Index. In light of this information, it was fitting for AWM to host a Women’s Learning Expedition (WLE) in Kigali, Rwanda from 24 to 26 May 2018 at the Marriott Hotel where we will be exploring the topic ‘The Succession Plan Blueprint: More Women Advancing To Roles of Power’.
The key principle of the expedition is to facilitate information sharing between African women, to learn from each other and to explore ways in which we can collectively improve the continent’s gender gap challenges by capacitating young women. This approach, we believe, lends itself to fostering a more united self-reliant Africa.
