Our Story

Founded in 2011

Leading Ladies Africa is a women-focused non-profit launched with the key aim of driving leadership for African women, promoting women’s rights in Africa, developing, and equipping African women with the skills required to take on leadership roles across Business, Governance and Corporate sectors.

African Women Empowerment and Leadership

We remain at the forefront of ensuring African women empowerment and leadership to achieve their set goals and dreams in life. Our programs are centered around three core pillars of promoting Leadership, Diversity and Inclusion. Through a targeted online content and strategic offline events, we are engaging with the women who will define Africa’s future.
We understand keenly, that the more diverse and inclusive leadership is, the more local communities develop, the faster businesses thrive, and the more society flourishes.

It’s a crucial and urgent imperative to have more women take on leadership roles in business and across the corporate sphere. It’s the only way real change can occur in the world.

The needs of organizations and society are so complex that they require a full range of diverse voices, and skill sets to solve them.

Creating an environment where different kinds of women can all succeed is crucial to socio-economic growth and development.


We are committed to creating the next generation of African female leaders who will provide sustainable solutions to Africa’s most pressing and socio-economic challenges.


Our vision is to foster at least 40% female representation in Business, Politics, Governance and Enterprise across a broad range of sectors in Africa.
