Gender Equality in a New Inclusive African Economy Conference
Atlanta, Georgia (USA)
August 3, 2017
Konnect2Africa in partnership with The International Women’s Think Tank, WorldWideWomen and Mums in Tech is pleased to present the first in a series of think tank conferences ‘GENIAE (Gender Equality in a New Inclusive African Economy)’ scheduled for April 18-19, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia.
GENIAE 2018 will address the gender gap in technology, create a platform for collaborations and provide opportunities that empower women in their lives and support solutions for inclusive economic growth.
GENIAE will kick off Day 1 with an assessment of the current gender gap in Africa, before exploring the critical role technology and private equity investment have in bridging that gap. It will also provide a platform for discussing practical strategies to tackle gender equality and potential opportunities for cross-border collaboration.
Day 2 will start by exploring the gender gap in the aviation economy and culminate on the subject of inclusiveness; how we can redefine the metrics for measuring economic success, and provide a platform to create a shared, binding mission for inclusive growth that will be tracked over subsequent GENIAE conferences.
