Event Details

Widening the pipeline of up-and-coming female leaders in South Africa is essential for fostering inclusive growth and ensuring diverse perspectives in leadership roles. Despite progress in gender equality, women remain underrepresented in top positions across various sectors. By investing in the development of female leaders, South Africa can harness the full potential of its talent pool, driving innovation and competitiveness. Empowering women through education, mentorship, and opportunities for advancement not only promotes gender parity but also strengthens the socio-economic fabric of the nation. A concerted effort to support emerging female leaders will lead to more balanced decision-making and a more equitable society.


Join us as we explore how a concerted effort to support emerging female leaders can lead to more balanced decision-making and a more equitable society. This event will feature panel discussions and networking opportunities aimed at creating actionable plans to empower the next generation of female leaders. For our August event, we are also inviting business leaders to bring up-and-coming female leaders from your organisation to join this powerful conversation.

Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Intelligence Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please contact us.
