AFRICA iXchange
Pan African Women’s Summit

The Pan African Women’s Summit is to inspire, engage & empower women across Africa to promote development in infrastructure, health & human resources, education and technology.

Summit Objectives

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!

The summit is being organized to encourage networking between decision makers from Africa and the US. It will be the first time to organize women from across Africa, organizational delegates and corporate leaders to network with their counterparts in Houston, in the areas of infrastructure, healthcare, technology, education and energy. As an emerging economy, Africa has the potential to be the source as well as the center of vast growth.
