Event description
We are delighted to announce our 2020 Women's Day Event: Women Leading Change. Date: March 5th, 2020. Location: The Whitby Hotel in NYC.

About this Event

This event will highlight three female change-makers working in the African conservation space. These three exceptional leaders include: Elizabeth Babalola, Director of The African Leadership University School of Wildlife Conservation; Amy Dickman, Ruaha Carnivore Project; and Angel Vendeline Namshali, General Manager of Asilia's Dunia Camp, supported by the philanthropic arm of Asilia Africa, Asilia Giving.

Each of these exceptional change-makers will present their work via a short film format.

The Women Leading Change Event will be held on March 5th, 2020 at The Whitby Hotel in New York City from 6:30PM - 10:30PM. The evening will consist of welcome drinks and a film screening followed by a standing cocktail dinner.

We are also pleased to announce Town & Country Magazine as our media sponsor.

Elizabeth Babalola is the Director of Operations of the School of Wildlife Conservation at the African Leadership University (ALU). She is passionate about the role of women in the conservation field and accomplishes this by fostering an appreciation, understanding, and love for the environment. Elizabeth has worked tirelessly toward making programs that give Africans a sense of ownership and responsibility over wildlife and the environment in order to fulfill the ideologies of the ALU. Elizabeth’s devotion towards the students of the ALU stems from her belief in their value of growth and sustainability of African conservation.

Amy Dickman founded Ruaha Carnivore Project in Tanzania in 2009 with the aim of establishing an internationally significant conservation project after receiving a 5-year Fellowship from Oxford University. She established the Ruaha Carnivore Project after receiving her MsC and PhD in the field, to take on the challenge of the vastly understudied Ruaha landscape. Her vision will be one of the defining factors in the way the vast Ruaha landscape, and other areas, are managed in Tanzania. With her academic background, she is working with researchers to provide solid scientific research that is being used by the government to make informed decisions towards sustainable and well managed wilderness areas, and to protect wildlife. One of Amy’s greatest achievements is to educate children of the village who live in close proximity to Ruaha National Park, as well as diving deep into solving other social issues as well in order to create a sustainable scenario where villagers are connected to conservation and benefit directly from it.

Angel Vandeline Namshali is the first female Tanzanian safari lodge manager of the Serengeti. Angel is the manager of Dunia Camp, which is a safari lodge run by women in Tanzania’s National Park. Angel has worked as the manager for four years, responsible for the camp, activities, and staff. Angel is driven by her strong desire to serve the community and conserve the environment. She believes that her all-female staff has been transformative in empowering women in the community, giving them the opportunity to work and have their voices heard.

Dunia Camp is supported by Asilia Giving, an organization that benefits people and nature alike by making bold, and often pioneering, investments into areas that are ecologically and economically vulnerable. By supporting projects like Dunia Camp and by collaborating with and funding in-country NGOs, Asilia Giving is able to ensure measurable change.
