Event description

Description

Africa Women Conference (AWC) was borne out of the realization that the 2030 mark set for the Sustainable Development Goals as adopted by the United Nations in 2015 cannot be realized without the commitment, inclusion and collective action of women at the national, regional and global stage because the role women play in influencing government policies and the economy of any society cannot be underestimated. Furthermore the conviction that having an Africa-Focused global event that provides a platform through which issues that impact the socio-economic growth and development of the continent’s women in particular and Africa as a whole are discussed, solutions provided and action plans adopted will further help Africa achieve its SDG obligations inspired the creation of the AWC.

The maiden edition with the theme: Repositioning Africa: Role of Women in Sustainable Development is scheduled to hold at the Hilton New York, JFK Airport Hotel from the 8th to the 11th of March 2018.

The choice of New York as location for the AWC 2018 is a strategic decision as the UN NGO CSW62 will commence immediately afterwards and this will enable most of the participants who already have interest in the CSW attend the Summit as well. Participants from Africa will also network with and learn from women from all across the world the models they are adopting in attaining the SDGs.
