Welcome

Dear Friends and Delegates

We have started 2019 with such hope for the advancement of women. We want to continue to encourage economic empowerment because we believe that is how we would achieve equality.


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 African descent and their momentous achievements as we continue to accomplish our goals. I humbly invite you to join us in Accra for the International SHEROES Forum themed: "Setting New Paradigms for Women's Leadership in Africa". This event is scheduled to take place at the Labadi Beach Hotel in Accra, from 16th -18th May 2019.

 

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 in Accra!

Dear Friends

Welcome to the International SHEROES Forum 2019! 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 into 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.

Former President of the Republic of Malawi
