WELCOME

Dear Friends and Delegates,


We have started 2018 with such hope for the advancement of women in exceptional positions such as Vice-President Jewel Howard-Taylor; we are so proud and highly encouraged to see one of 'us' break through to become the first female Vice President of Liberia. I hope that Africa and the world would recognize women as part of the foundation of Africa's socio-economic development.

The International SHEROES Forum platform was created to assist and celebrate women of Africa descent and their momentous achievements as we continue to accomplish our goals. I humbly invite you to join us at the fifth edition of the International SHEROES Forum themed: "Women's Leadership: Honoring the Past, Treasuring the Present and Shaping the Future". This event is scheduled to take palce at the Labadi Beach Hotel in Accra, from 17th - 19th May, 2018. I guarantee that whether you attend to drive your personal development, improve your leadership potential or just networking - this is the forum for you!

I am looking forward to seeing you soon in Accra!

Dear Friends,


Welcome to the International SHEROES Forum 2018! I am proud to be associated with this program, which is a women's movement for gender equality in Africa and beyond. Each year, we bring together Women Leaders from all walks of life to discuss how to push our agenda; we come together to Engage, Learn and Motivate.

With our "Elect Her in Africa - EHIA" initiative, we want to encourage more ambitious Women in Political Leadership. African women are proving to be great leaders and amazing role models to the younger generation and we want to showcase that to the world! It is my hope that the special roles women play in Africa's progressive transformation will be acknowledged and appreciated.

 

I encourage you to join me at this special women's event as we strategize on economic sustainability in Africa.

Health and Wellness and Motivational Session
(All delegates are requested to wear the SHEROES T shirts and jeans)

The dramatic increase in rates of non-communicable diseases, from cancers to diabetes, affects reproductive health. Women’s mental health, infertility, and sexuality are all still neglected. The disproportionate number of women in poverty is a further health challenge. A life-cycle approach to women’s health is sorely needed. The panel will explore these challenges, and how the health needs of women can be better met.
