Summit Theme

Sailing Strong: The Authentic Voice of the African Woman

Background

Bold Pathfinding Women of Africa (BPaWA)

This summit brings together women of various backgrounds in Africa, for the purpose of amplifying their voices and being heard in our somewhat patriarchal society. BPaWA, is a program set to change the narrative of women having to shine less than their male contemporaries. Also, the issue of gender equity in the African context is made to be the precedence for the whole movement because, we believe that, when women are empowered, the benefits are perceived by the whole community.

This event will also target younger women to empower them to become leaders in their different individual spheres of influence. With the right knowledge about equity and equality as it relates to gender roles, young women are able to thrive with the uniqueness of their African heritage anywhere in the world.

The goal of this summit is to explore opportunities and options to mitigate the disproportionately negative impact of COVID19 pandemic and its national responses on women, children, and young persons. Another thing is to amplify the voices of the Women of Africa, celebrate their successes towards accelerating equality, leadership, and opportunities for women and girls as part of the generation equality movement and commitment.
