6th FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit
March 8 - March 9
Since its inception in 2016, the FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit has been a platform bringing together a unique collection of female leaders and trail-blazers from across Africa and the world.
Held a year after the first reported COVID-19 case in South Africa in March 2020, the 2021 summit will reflect on the most disruptive period in recent history through the collective anecdotes and shared experiences of contrarians and corporate powerhouses, also recording for posterity the measurable solutions that will reset Africa.
This year’s event is adapting to the ‘new normal’ by embracing the latest technology. So, in honour of International Women’s Day, the 2021 FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit, presented by Mastercard, will be held, for the first time, as a free-to-attend virtual event and across two days, 8 and 9 March, anticipated to draw an audience of more than 2 000 attendees from across the world.
This year’s theme, Africa Reloaded: The Power of The Collective, will, through hard-hitting talks, fireside chats and insightful panel sessions, look back on the year that changed everything, but look forward to a new path of recovery, growth and inclusivity on the continent, as a single market where Africa trades with Africa.
