The International Conference on African Women Development (ICOAWD)

The International Conference on African Women Development is an annual International conference aimed at strengthening the capacity of African Women Leaders. Women in Africa continue to face enormous obstacles. The growing recognition of their contributions has not translated into significantly improved access to resources or increased decision-making powers. Neither has the dynamism that women display in the economic, cultural and social lives of their communities through their associations and informal networks been channeled into creating new models of participation and leadership.

Therefore ICOAWD is designed to create the platform for African women leaders to have a comprehensive review of successes, best practices, lessons learned, obstacles and gaps, challenges and opportunities that exist for women in diverse fields in Africa. This is to ensure replicating and up-scaling of good practices in a bid to fulfilling the vision of the African Women’s Decade.
