The African women in Europe (AWE) Conference is one of the projects run by the main organisation African Women in Europe (AWE) Network which was founded in 2008. By recognising African Diaspora heroines and expert led conferences presented by African Women who have exhaled in their careers to motivate, inspire and encourage.
AWE brings together a powerful network of over 1000 women of distinction providing peer support. Members actively support each others projects, events and businesses. This has had a catalyst effect with no member being left behind, all excelling. There are several online forums that have intellectual and thought provoking discussions about issues affecting Africans globally, seek solutions and sharing resources related to business, employment and academic opportunities.
This network meets every year to recognise achievement and provide a platform for learning, empowerment and networking. The last event was a conference and glamorous award ceremony in Geneva, Switzerland on 20 June 2015. The theme of the conference was “Leadership and Honouring Women’s Rights.” For more info about past AWE Awards events visit http://aweawards.africanwomenineurope.eu/
AWE Conference theme for this year is Leadership and Integration for Change. The deadline for registration is 30 April 2016 and women and men are invited. This will have a powerhouse of speakers, entertainers and networking, finishing off with three course dinner and dance African way. We sold out in last years and the same will happen this year.
Women are the cornerstone of society and AWE embodies the African saying “If you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together.” Proof of this is in our membership and their achievements both public and private. Join in and be inspired, learn and contribute.
