, this timely and important conference will expand our understanding of the many ways women leaders are transforming their communities and their nations; it promises to advance thought leadership and provide opportunities to learn from the women who are making a difference not only across Africa but around the world. In lectures, breakout sessions, and informal discussions, attendees will explore what women’s leadership looks like through the lens of four key leadership competencies—confidence, creativity, courage, and resilience—leading to a deeper appreciation of the challenges African women leaders face and offering productive strategies for addressing them.
