FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Summit is Going Regional

By Leah Netabai

Following the fourth edition of FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit – held in Durban, South Africa – on International Women’s Day, the hugely popular annual summit is going regional for the first time.

The Regional Forum, in association with Mastercard, will “echo the same fervour and sentiment as the flagship Leading Women Summit but in hosting it for the first time in East Africa” says Renuka Methil, Managing Editor of FORBES AFRICA and FORBES WOMAN AFRICA.

The event will be hosted at the Kigali Serena Hotel on 9th August, coinciding with National Women’s Day. The forum looks to bring 250 powerful women from across East Africa together, enabling guests to come “face-to-face with the women who are at the top of their game in this region”.

FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit in March 2019 saw notable names in business, sports, politics and the arts alongside supermodel, philanthropist, activist and cultural innovator, Naomi Campbell as headline.
