who we are

The African Women Leaders Network (AWLN) is a vibrant network of accomplished female leaders with outstanding trails in the political, business, academia, science, community and general leadership arenas, as well as a pool of accomplished, talented, innovative young leaders and professionals, with notable achievements, striving to reach their leadership potential and be impactful.

Mentoring appears to be an effective strategy to develop trust, mutually beneficial relationships and a meaningful commitment between rising and seasoned leaders. Building on the outcomes of the first AWLN Intergenerational Leadership Retreat hosted in August 2019 in Nairobi, Kenya and the second retreat held virtually in December 2020, the AWLN Young women caucus propose to develop an inclusive, intergenerational, mutually beneficial mentorship platform and program between senior leaders and young women to equip and prepare the generation of young women to lead with purpose at national, regional, and global spheres while sharing their expertise with senior women.
