Each year, over 1000 Global Women’s Summits are being presented by The Women Information Network (WIN) in major cities worldwide. The mission is to strengthen women and families through Education, Empowerment, and Entrepreneurship in order to eradicate illiteracy, poverty and hunger in every nation. This year’s theme is Towards Vision 2020, Women Leading Innovative Transformation.
For the First time in Rwanda, this world-class event is brought to you by KORA Associates, New Faces New Voices Rwanda Chapter and IFC World Bank Group. Women in the country are invited to come and celebrate International Women’s Day on 8th March 2016 with global Thought Leaders as they share key strategies on Personal Development, Leadership, Entrepreneurial Solutions and motivational tools for career and business growth.
Speakers include Mireille Karera, Coach and Kora Founder, Rwanda; Tumi Frazier, Speaker, Author and Consultant, South Africa; Stacey Speller, Speaker and Author, USA; and Melanie Hawken, Founder of Lionesses of Africa.
This powerful and informative event will help women to address challenges in both their personal and business lives. On the personal front, they will get advice and inspiration on how to lead effectively, how to create the life they want, and how to overcome obstacles in life. In the world of business, they will hear from successful women in business as to how how to manage effectively, how to monetize their passion and skills, how to grow their businesses, and how to explore new investment opportunities.
"There is a reason this is being called the Decade of the African Woman Entrepreneur. 25% of women have set up their own businesses on the African continent, the highest rate on the planet!"
- Melanie Hawken, founder and CEO of Lionesses of Africa
