Women Of Influence - African Women In Business Conference
Friday, July 13, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
Women of Influence
The 2nd Annual African Women in Business Conference
Following the phenomenal success of the inaugural African Women in Business Conference in 2011, the Association for African Owned Enterprises (AAOE) is once again hosting the UK’s only African Women in Business Conference in Central London.
With the theme Women of Influence this timely event will not only showcase Women of Influence in our community but also to encourage and inspire others to exert their influence.
"We want to encourage women who have achieved success and hold senior leadership positions to be bold and confident in these positions and use them as platforms to wield their influence as women rather than take up these positions as "token" leaders in place just to fulfill gender equality policies.”
Washington Kapapiro, Chairman AAOE UK
With the endorsement of The Rt. Hon Lynne Featherstone MP - Under-Secretary of State for Equalities, the 2012 conference is set make history once again, bringing together, informing and celebrating African female entrepreneurs and professionals in the diaspora.
"I am happy to be extending my support for the African Women in Business conference for the second year...
...The objectives of this conference reflect those of the Government: to get more women into business and into senior leadership positions. It is essential that we get more businesses and charities to realise the benefits of having more women in their leadership teams. When the key decisions makers better reflect our society, we maximise our chances for future growth, wellbeing and prosperity."
The Rt. Hon Lynne Featherstone MP

“The conference is an ideal platform for women of influence to share their experiences in the community and to continue to bring about positive change in the global arena.”

It is undoubtedly the beginning of an exciting journey for African business women in the UK.”

When & Where
Association for African Owned Enterprises
The African Women in Business Conference is a national initiative to promote and acknowledge African women entrepreneurship, recognize pioneering industrialists and inspire higher standards and aspirations amongst African women to aspire for senior leadership roles in their professions.
There are over 5.5 million Africans in the UK to date, including all African nationalities, all races and all ages; and many of those are women. This conference aims to bring this previously muted group into the mainstream. We certainly look forward to seeing you at this leading event on the UK-African calendar.
