In the dynamic and rapidly evolving landscape of Pan-African leadership, women are emerging as powerful catalysts for innovation and change. Across the continent, women leaders are breaking barriers, shattering glass ceilings, and making significant contributions to innovation, economic growth, and social progress.
On Tuesday, September 26th, we held our first Pan-African Female Focus event where we celebrated remarkable female leaders and Innovators across Africa. The event was a success offering invaluable insights.
The evening kicked off with a collective celebration of the accomplishments of our panel of distinguished speakers Ibukun Beecroft, Partner in Risk Advisory at Deloitte (Nigeria), Sonja Coetzer, Managing Director of Salt Essentials IT (Namibia), Dorcas Rutunda, Regional Managing Director at ITM Africa Limited (Rwanda), Patricia Okelo, Co-founder of Kayana (Kenya), and Ojoma Ochai, Managing Partner of The Creative Economy Practice at Co-creation Hub (Nigeria).
One of the key takeaways centered around the importance of developing financial literacy. Participants discussed funding sources, startup strategies, and how to make well-informed financial decisions. The discussions were not just informative but empowering, providing a roadmap for financial success in the dynamic African business environment.
The significance of mentoring in corporate success was another essential issue. The event emphasized the need for platforms connecting individuals with mentors who offer personalized advice and insights into creating successful businesses. This emphasis on mentorship resonated deeply, highlighting its role in corporate success.
As we look back on this inaugural Female Focus event, the success, and engagement inspire us to eagerly anticipate the next session. The Pan-African Female Focus is more than an event, it’s a movement—empowering women, celebrating achievements, and paving the way for a more prosperous future across Africa.
Be on the lookout for more information on the next Female Focus session.
