About the African Women Trade & Investment Opportunities Conference

Far too often, African women are not fully recognized in Africa’s economic success story due to the “single story”. They play critical role, not only in reducing poverty, but also generating a powerful economic, educational and social growth for their families and communities. It is against this background that the African Women Diplomatic Forum (AWDF) and African Diplomatic Corps accredited to Canada in collaboration with the Canadian Council for Africa (CCAfrica), are organising a conference under the theme “The Role of African Women in Stimulating the African Economic Growth”.

CCAfrica, as the only pan-Canadian non-profit organization, is dedicated to promote a multilateral business, trade, investment relations alongside education and social development between Canada and Africa. Today, we have taken an important initiative to organize a conference dedicated, specifically, to African Women. 

The conference titled ‘African Women Trade and Investment Opportunities’, aims to promote and support African women’s entrepreneurship and public service role in building better Africa. AWDF and CCAfrica believe such role of women in African economic growth will increase and strengthen people-to-people tie in all aspects of commercial, political, economic and social progress with all Canadians
