Every year the African Women in Leadership Organisation (AWLO) brings together women of African descent from various walks of life to channel their leadership potential at the African Women in Leadership Conference (AWLC).
In what started as the West African Women in Leadership Conference (WAWLC) in 2009 at Accra Ghana, AWLO realized the need for African women to reach the crescendo of their potential, and has taken this conference round the globe yearly, hosting one global edition in the United States, alongside an edition hosted in Africa.
During AWLC, heads of government, and stakeholders are brought in, to weather in on the concerns of the African Woman. It is usually attended by women leaders of African descent such as, CEOs, Executives, Politicians, Public Servants, Entrepreneurs, Intrapreneurs, and Professionals. It rekindles the zeal for leadership, and gears up women for leadership roles.
Top priority at AWLC yearly, is a communique adopted after resolutions made by stakeholders during the conference. The conference culminates in an awards/gala that recognizes industrious women leaders who have roled in achievements for the continent.
It’s an all-encompassing event, as AWLC is also a moment to experience the sights and sound of Africa. It brings you culture at its peaks, as delegates are given the chance to tour historical sights, watch cultural displays and African fashion exhibitions.
