About the Women and Girl's Summit in Africa

(WAGS 2020 is now a Virtual Summit! )

The Women and Girls Summit (WAGS), which will take place on November 16-18, 2020, aims to prepare women of today and tomorrow to take on key leadership roles in all areas and across all industries to ensure that Africa realizes its full potential. The summit will offer unique opportunities for participants to network with leaders and key influencers from across the world.

It will provide a platform for women to voice their concerns and develop solutions to manage economic, societal and cultural challenges. Issues ranging from entrepreneurship to the impact of climate change, to reproductive health, to developing socially responsible enterprises will be discussed through stimulating, thought-provoking debates, TEDx-like talks, and workshop sessions.

This transformational event will create a group of change agents, passionate about driving and implementing actions that will help countries in Africa across the development continuum. It will also serve as the foundation for the birth of new, impactful initiatives and institutions.
