Event Brief

Africa is home to some of the fastest growing economies in the world, and despite the much-hyped stereotypes of a continent forever plagued by disease, war and turmoil, it is rapidly becoming the most desirable investment destination in the world today. Though the African economy has been badly hit by the pandemic, one of the apparent pathways economic transformation and sustainability in Africa is for policymakers to intentionally grapple with the exciting opportunities of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) in Africa which has been upending the nature of work, globally.

By 2030, Africa’s potential workforce will be among the world’s largest, and with the needed infrastructure and skills for innovation and technology use, the 4IR will spur massive opportunity for growth. In recent years, the ICT sector in Africa has continued to grow, a trend that is likely to continue as available data shows that mobile technologies and services have generated 1.7 million formal and informal direct jobs, as well as contributed to $144 billion of economic value (8.5 percent of the GDP of sub-Saharan Africa), and $15.6 billion to the public sector through taxation. 

In the same vein, the Industry 4.0 will narrow the traditional; engender digitization of the manufacturing sector, with tremendous opportunities for African manufacturers and small and medium enterprises to create new business models of the future and integrate into global value chains seamlessly.

The African Leadership Magazine is therefore putting together 5th edition of The Invest in Africa Summit-2021 to bring together Policymakers, private sector leaders, Industry Titans, and all stakeholders during this 2-day forum to contribute to shaping a new future for our continent. The summit will also offer a platform for Africa to showcase the key investment opportunities, and celebrate the African Business Leadership Awards (ABLA) 2021, a highlight of the summit.

Key Highlights of the Summit

  • Keynotes and Panel discussions
  • Investment opportunities showcase from states, regional and national governments
  • The 11th African Business Leadership Awards (ABLA) 2021.
  • Editorial listing of Top 50 Industry Leaders 2021
  • Unveiling the ABLA special edition

Target Audience 

  • African Policymakers, Business leaders, & Entrepreneurs
  • Key Stakeholders and potential investors in Africa
  • Think-tanks, International Development Institutions and academics

Event Brief

Women, over the years, have unarguably demonstrated a strong determination to achieve career successes by their ability to adjust to male-dominated culture and business processes in their various fields. In recent years, the empowerment of women, increasing women’s participation in all aspects of political, social and economic life, has been one of the major goals of participatory movements, as well as women’s organizations throughout the world. These evidently enabled more women in leadership positions across the continent to continue to push the boundaries by utilizing their strengths and leadership qualities in skill, knowledge, experience and passion.

However, across many African countries, research shows that women’s advancement in the society is yet encumbered by legal, social and structural barriers. From national governments, state or provincial governments, to local community groups, women are vastly underrepresented in decision making processes. For instance, Women’s Political Participation: Africa Barometer 2021 Report states that women constitute only 24 per cent of the 12,113 parliamentarians in Africa, 25 per cent in the lower houses, and 20 per cent in the upper houses of parliament. Moreover, while local government is often hailed as a training ground for women in politics, the report added that women constitute a mere 21 per cent of councilors in the 19 countries for which complete data could be obtained.

In addition, more than anything else, the advent of the coronavirus pandemic in the past year revealed the disproportionate impact of governance and policies on women and children. Available data show that the economic impact of the COVID-19 have been worse on women from diverse perspectives. The pandemic has had adverse effect on female-dominated fields, while increasing the unpaid caregiving responsibilities that women disproportionately shoulder, a socio-cultural barrier which often impedes women’s abilities to participate in community consultations and decision-making processes about sustainable management initiatives. The bold new fiscal packages and corporate policies, many of which would have seemed unthinkable before the pandemic, have been enacted with remarkable speed to stabilize the economy during this unprecedented crisis. But some have failed to sufficiently consider women, the half of the world’s population that is arguably more critical to a full economic recovery. 

Therefore, experts have opined that if African governments and corporate leaders do not make women’s economic participation a priority of their post-pandemic recovery planning, the modest economic gains that women have made in recent decades will be lost, while the continent’s economic prospects will significantly weaken. To this end, the Amazons Watch Magazine, in partnership with the African Leadership Magazine and the Centre for Economic and Leadership Development (CELD) is thrilled to put together the 3rd Africa Power Women Conference (APWC) – 2021. 

This year’s Africa Power Women Conference (APWC) will bring together, the thoughts, insights and divergent views of leaders from business, civil society, and government to discuss ways to advance women’s empowerment around Africa, equip women with the skills, knowledge and shared experiences, not only to build back stronger from the crisis, but also to enable more women to bid and aspire for the highest leadership positions on the continent. The theme of this year’s edition of the conference is thus set as: Pathways to Building Back Better for Women in Africa.

The highlights of the conference include:

  • Keynotes, Plenary and panel sessions
  • Public Engagement session / Q&A from open participants
  • The African Inspirational Female Leadership Awards
  • Unveiling of Amazons Watch Magazine special edition listing of “Top 100 African Power Women 2021”: Recognizing influential and inspiring African women from all walks of life who are rising to today’s unprecedented challenges.
  • CSR & Gender Equality– A panel discussion with corporate leaders on women-friendly corporate social responsibilities.
  • Top 40 Corporations/Individuals Investing on Women Empowerment.
  • A fireside Chat/HeforShe Session, tagged: Investing on Women & Girl-Child Development”.
  • Pre-conference Women Leadership Development Forum – 2021

Target Audience:

  • Female Policymakers, Senior Government Officials and Diplomats
  • Female Business Leaders, Entrepreneurs, small business owners 
  • Think-tanks and International Development Institutions
  • Academics, Civil society activists, and multilateral leaders
  • All African women, stakeholders and HeforShe champions

Event Brief

Although African countries are capable of continuing their progress on the long road to recovery post COVID-19, there is no doubting that international support would greatly bolster their efforts on many fronts—including increased testing capacity, resource mobilization, and coordinated policies in preventing and containing the coronavirus’s spread and promoting economic recovery. Therefore, experts have opined that global partnerships with Africa would improve the continent’s crisis response, accelerate economic recovery, and build momentum and resilient systems for sustainable growth and development. 

While multilateral and bilateral partners have been providing some financial support in the form of debt relief, loans and grants, pundits yet believe that African governments need much more, especially by securing additional resources and investing in key sectors to hasten economic recovery, and developing new initiatives and partnerships to address fragilities and bridge the gaps between policy goals and outcomes, including ineffective institutions, corruption, and a lack of accountability. 

To this end, the African Leadership magazine’s International Forum on African Leadership (IFAL) 2021 will bring together the divergent views and thoughts of leading experts, academics, researchers, business and political Leaders and key stakeholders to build global partnerships for Africa’s economic recovery and development. The theme of the Forum is set as: Scaling-up Development Efforts and Global Partnerships for Africa.

KEY EXPECTED PARTICIPANT

  • Heads of States and Governments
  • Senior Government Officials and policy leaders
  • Heads of African Missions and diplomats
  • Major Industry Titans, Leaders, and Key Stakeholders
  • Think-tanks, Industry Experts and International Development Institutions
