Emergence of women of Africa

Leading Women of Africa (LWA) was founded as a Pan African Forum that promotes the inclusion of women in the mainstream economy by ensuring that more women emerge as successful and influential leaders in all spheres: Political, professional and business.

The Pan-African network of women

The past few years LWA has rapidly grown to become a recognised women organisation focusing on women economic empowerment on the continent. It has also championed the real inclusion of women in the mainstream economy in Africa.
