Women-focused Non-Profit Organisation Leading Ladies Africa has said that the panacea for Africa’s economic growth is to give women a fair share in the leadership of the economies.
The group which condemned what it described as gender imbalance in the scheme of things in Africa said African leaders must let women take adequate share in leadership of the continent.
The group in a statement said it must continue on its goal of strengthening the continued push for gender equality, parity and inclusion for African women.
Amplifying the group’s internal diversity and inclusion drive, it initiated a Leadership By Design Summit, which seeks to address and proffer solutions to the most pressing challenges women face in business, workplace, and leadership fields. The event is billed to hold March 27, at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, Oniru, Lagos.
