The next generation of African female business leaders.
She Leads Africa(SLA) is an organisation which identifies itself as being part of an ecosystem to empower women to break the barriers which hold them back in the continent.
Media presence in the current age of globalization is everything and one such organization that brings this out perfectly is the She Leads Africa(SLA) foundation which has roots in Nigeria. Many people may not have heard about it(not that many) but the good news is that it is building traction with presence in more than half of the African continent and global ambassadors from Media personalities, celebrities and women in business. They do live interviews, professional boot camps, online campaigns, competitions and social awareness. This it does by assisting women entrepreneurs to turn their start-ups into major corporations proving that Africa is the new hub for investments and business development
It has been featured in Forbes Africa, How we made it in Africa, CNBC Africa and the Huffington Post among others proving its reach and diversification. Its main aim is to uplift African women along their journey towards professional success. Such platforms exist to connect excellence and aspiring talent, offer mentor-ship and strengthen the female community. They also provide funds and open channels for women aspiring to do great things in all sectors of the economy. It is truly inspiring to see these leaps and anything growing a woman financially grows a community too.
Going through their social media on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and their website offer events across the continent to build relationships with fellow young women and mentors. With partners such as Intel, Huawei and GTA Bank, the future is looking bright for this Pan African Organization. I particularly enjoy their Instagram since its so quirky and fun and understands the modern African woman just perfectly.
A transformational experience for young women looking to break through, live their purpose and get real results in their businesses and careers. African woman CAN run the world.
The good thing is that the organization does not only offer financial help but also advisory and connections to scholarship programs with their Twitter and Facebook feeds boasting of so much advice for the young African woman on the rise in her life and career. It is simply a one stop shop for female growth and investors should look to growing the Africa woman because any business that does not in some way touch on a woman, her life or her family is losing in the long run. Founded by management consultants Yasmin Belo-Osagie and Afua Osei, She Leads Africa came to life when the two met at an event in Lagos, Nigeria and they have been looking to reach wider audiences and elevate the African woman and growth prospects are more than positive for She Leads Africa.
