I have traveled across continents to Atlanta Georgia USA, to convene African Women in Leadership Diaspora Conference 2017 a.k.a #AWLCATLANTA2017. It’s been a warm reception, thanks to the super USA Team led by our AWLO USA VP, Emilia Orubele. I am proud of the formidable team, and what they have been putting together.
Speaking of which, we are on finishing touches for the Conference, and I am super excited! Can you imagine gathering women of African Descent from different works of life to have conversations, deliberations, capacity building, and expand their networks, ultimately to advance their leadership status? This is what I live for; to see that women take their rightful place as home and nation builders with equal rights and opportunities. We will talk more about this during the conference.
To crown my efforts with the best news yet, AWLO is now officially recognized as a 501(c) organization in the federal law of the United States. More news on this coming soon.
I can’t wait to see you in Atlanta!
