Dear AWB Friends & Family, 

Welcome to July, and the second half of the year! It’s been an invigorating ride so far!

In January, our session, ‘Going Beyond Advocacy: Actionable Steps towards Safety in the Workplace’, offered practical guidelines on overall workplace safety for women. 

In February, we joined the global celebration, Black History Month, and curated ‘Women We Admire’ in celebration of Galentine’s Day. And March saw us exploring the future of work with a focus on Trolling and the Virtual Workplace.

In April, we hosted Eriye Onogoruwa, Author of ‘Dear Alaere’ at our ‘Meet the Author’ series in collaboration with Paperworth Books. Check out PaperWorth’s full published works HERE!

May was a month of firsts and we were excited to join our partner, The Africa Soft Power Project for the launch of ‘Africa Month’ in Kigali, Rwanda! Check out a summary of our fave session ‘Women Communicating Africa Forward’ HERE. And June was a month of wins in sports, politics, and entertainment, find some of our favourite stories HERE

We want to know women doing exceptional things around you! Send an email to awb@africanwomenonboard.org and we’ll spotlight them across our platforms!

We are kicking off July with our ‘Catalogue of Favourites’ book campaign and you can find more details below!
