    About AWIS

    Overview of Africa women Impact Awards & Summit

    Africa Women Impact Summit (AFRIWIS) , is the prime global platform for leadership, empowerment, intervention and collaboration for African women Entrepreneurs, CEOs, investor, politicians and policy makers.

    Africa’s continental Development Strategy highlights the importance of gender sensitivity in policymaking and of women’s economic participation in attending the Africa government’s Vision 2030.

    However, women have been among the worst affected groups by the already floundering economy, which has exacerbated the challenges they face in economic life, such as access to credit, financial services and social security.

    Leveraging existing structures such as women’s groups, micro-finance facilities, education and training, and national gender mechanisms, as well as supporting wider political, financial and digital inclusion in Africa, is central for the Continent’s continuous economic recovery.

    Women’s economic empowerment is central to realizing women’s rights and gender equality. Women’s economic empowerment includes women’s ability to participate equally in existing markets; their access to and control over productive resources, access to decent work, control over their own time, lives and bodies; and increased voice, agency and meaningful participation in economic decision-making at all levels from the household to international institutions.

    Africa Women Impact Summit & Awards (AWIS 2023)

    will aim to harness, validate, and amplify the contributions of African diaspora women in Africa’s growth, security and prosperity. In addition, our goals at this summit will be to help expand the African affairs workforce, advance women’s leadership in the workplace, and promote the critical role of the diaspora in Africa’s development.

    Speakers will be drawn from different parts of Africa and the diaspora to discuss the challenging role of women in Africa’s economic and political structures and priorities for promoting greater political and economic inclusion, agency and influence of women in the continent. Here experts, technocrats, business leaders and social entrepreneurs will discuss how women led organizations are coordinating support for women who dare to show interest in top political, managerial and leadership space in their different communities across Africa.
