Some people call it “empowering” women and girls. We call it “investing.” That’s because each action you take to increase a woman’s access to equal opportunities in the workplace, a girl’s access education, and steps you take to eliminate gender-based violence benefits your community, country, and continent.
This year, let’s press for progress. The 2018 edition of Africa4Her is dedicated to supporting female entrepreneurs by raising awareness of the challenges women entrepreneurs face and empowering you to take positive action to address those challenges. This isn’t just about women, men play an important role in empowering, mentoring, and supporting women entrepreneurs. Together we are stronger and together we can make progress, let’s start now.
Press for Progress.
