H.E JOYCE BANDA, H.E Lordina Mahama, H.E. Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao, Mrs. Ibukun Awosika, Engr. Dr. Noah Dallaji and Rt. Hon. Mukabalisa Donatille set to be honored at the Africa Women Impact summit in Abuja Nigeria

Africa’s Continental Development Strategy highlights the importance of gender sensitivity in policymaking and of women’s economic participation in attaining the Africa government’s Vision 2030. However, women have been among the worst affected groups by the devastating effects that COVID-19 has had on Africa’s already floundering economy, which has exacerbated the challenges they face in economic life, such as access to credit, financial services and social security.

AFRICA WOMEN IMPACT SUMMIT (AWIS 2021) aims to harness, validate, and amplify the contributions of African women and their diaspora counterpart in Africa’s growth, security and prosperity. Additionally, the goals at this summit will be to help expand the African affairs workforce, advance women’s leadership in workplace, and promote the critical role of the diaspora in Africa’s development.

Our 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 the priorities for promoting greater political and economic inclusion, agency and influence of women in the continent. It will also focus on the differing impacts of COVID-19 on women’s economic activities across various sectors, as well as along rural-urban and formal-informal economy lines.
