The 8th Edition of African Women in Leadership Organisation (AWLO) Global Summer Conference Washington DC 2016 is here again!! This year’s conference, with the theme: “We’ve got the power” will feature a special youth summit tagged; “Raising the next generation of female leaders”.
Over the last 15 years, the global community has made significant progress in improving the lives of girls during early childhood. However, there has been insufficient investment in addressing the challenges girls face when they enter the second decade of their lives.
Empowerment of and investment in girls are key in breaking the cycle of discrimination and violence and in promoting and protecting the full and effective enjoyment of their human rights
United Nations Resolution 66/170
As we plan sustainable development goals, it is an opportune time to consider the importance of social, economic, and political investment in the power of adolescent girls, as fundamental to breaking the inter-generational transmission of poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination, and to achieving equitable and sustainable development outcomes.
The conference will also showcase African Fashion Runway show/Awards gala dinner, after a very exciting conference sessions/panel discussions with outstanding speakers across the world. You definitely don’t want to miss this great gathering of Women of African Descent of great worth.
