The Remarkable African Women’s Leadership Conference | 2024

Join African Women on Board, in collaboration with Africa Soft Power in Kigali, Rwanda on May 29th for the Remarkable African Women’s (RAW) Leadership Conference!

The RAW Conference holds the distinction of being the continent’s first gathering focused on African women’s leadership – and its vital role in addressing the intersectional issues of our time. Powered by African Women on Board, the event presents a novel perspective on gender discourse – advancing the visibility and perspectives of African women in global discourse and highlighting insights towards gender equality at large. 

The conference is a cornerstone event within the Africa Soft Power Summit, ASP’s premier flagship gathering of C-level executives, tech and financial innovators, creative institutions, changemakers, and government leaders. The four-day gathering draws speakers and participants from across Africa and the wider global diaspora with a focus on the future of women’s leadership, creative industries, technology, infrastructure, tourism, sustainability, and finance in Africa.

This year’s agenda includes: 

The 2024 Africa Soft Power Summit will bring together private and public sector leaders alongside innovators and emerging young leaders to address the trends shaping the continent’s business landscape and provide valuable network and business opportunities; game-changing conversations on the global social and economic priorities of our time – from women’s leadership to AI, security, payments, the future of work, climate change and much more.


We invite you to mark your calendars for an unparalleled experience. More details on our line-up of distinguished speakers, and engaging sessions will be shared soon. In the meantime, we welcome sponsors, researchers, interested speakers, and partners to join us. For enquiries, email: or
