South African Series Connects Leading Young And Influential Women From Around The World

Youngpreneur Media (Pty) in association with the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards created an online roundtable series called Leading Voices. The monthly digital roundtable features well accomplished and extraordinary young female entrepreneurs across the varying regions of the world. The purpose of the platform is to gather phenomenal women of influence, on a local and (or) international scale, to talk about leadership and entrepreneurship through the lens of driving an impactful change.
The platform inspires, informs and connects women across the world through engaging conversations led by authentic yet fascinating young female entrepreneurs. Leading Voices is more than a show which celebrates the efforts of young creative women; it is about harnessing the louder voices of the young generation to drive further impetus to the movement which recognises the creative contribution of women voices around the world.

The first episode which was recently released on Youngpreneur Media’s social media pages includes South Africa’s Rapelang Rabana (youngest female on the Forbes Africa cover) and Raelene Rorke, former Miss Teen South Africa turned social entrepreneur. This is episode was created in association with the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards. The series is hosted by an emerging voice on the entrepreneurship scene Amy de Castro of Bamboo Revolution. The panel includes famed Brazilian tech-entrepreneur and author, Bel Pesce; Greek social entrepreneur and NASA astronaut trainer, Eleni Antoniadou; and Nigerian born Chi Acheba who was at the forefront of identifying emerging young entrepreneurs on the African continent through the Anzisha Prize of the African Leadership Academy.

True to its purpose the series is created for women, by women, leaving a sense of comfort and support for the rising women entrepreneur and thought leader.

Watch the first episode below and stand a chance to win a prize by a Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards Company.
