It’s the season of African Women in Leadership Diaspora Conference, and delegates are getting set to converge in Atlanta USA this summer. African Women in Leadership Diaspora Conference has in the last few years converged the ‘who is who’ amongst African Leaders, for a discourse to bridge the gap of actualization of African Female leadership. This discourse is well represented with key players such as policy makers, activists, private sector individuals, and gender-friendly men. It is also a time for capacity-building for women in leadership.
