Africa Women Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF) invites you to celebrate International Women’s Day on Monday, 9 March 2020 at Lagos Oriental Hotel, Lagos under the theme: “Decade of economic emancipation of women in Africa 2020-2030”.
Keynote Speaker: H. E. Carl Michael Gräns, Ambassador of Sweden to Nigeria
Gender inequality persists and women and girls continue to shoulder Africa’s burden of hunger and poverty. The year 2020 coincides with several important milestones globally and on the continent on gender equality:
- Implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA)
- Conclusion of the AU’s Decade of African Women
- End of the commitment made in AU Agenda 2063 of ensuring 50 percent of women’s representation in decision-making by 2020
- Beijing +25 Review and the Generation Equality Forum
2020 – 2030 is the last decade for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). There has never been a better decade to seriously work on the economic empowerment of women. How do we ensure that women and women-owned businesses are elevated by AfCFTA, political and economic transformation and that the principle of collectivism is amplified and entrenched?
