Why a Summit?
Misconceptions are the one connecting thread no matter what part of Africa is mentioned; in media, in educational formats, across the board. Yes, every country has its detracting factors but those factors are not the only heartbeat of a nation. Africa has the resources, the capability, and the strength to be international leaders in agricultural impact, healthcare advances, technological innovations and infrastructure development. Building on strengths and repairing weaknesses is the only way to move forward. Africa has a destiny to fulfill.
The patriarchal mandates have not worked so far. It is time for women to take leadership to a multinational level. The Pan African Women’s Summit is the start. We have work to do…roads to build, dreams to achieve. Let’s start now!
