Bold Pathfinding Women of Africa Summit


Bold Pathfinding Women of Africa (BPaWA) is a global platform that brings together various organizations for the purpose of celebrating and amplifying the voice of an African woman. It encourages dedication to gender equality and use knowledge to bring together different voices.

The event is a unique opportunity to highlight the core contributions of women in social Justice and gender equity, engage more young people to talk about future of gender equality in Africa and build generational capacities for equity, as well as celebrate women of Africa who have stood out. The theme, “Sailing Strong – The Authentic Voice of the Woman of Africa”, encourages African women to own their authentic voice—using it to push confidently towards their hopes and desires. It strives to celebrate the authenticity of the African woman within this space. And will be training women on economic empowerment initiatives for them to be financially inclusive.
