Under the theme ‘Building the Africa of tomorrow’, this will be an authentic space designed for shared learning.

“Achieving gender diversity is imperative for all of us, it’s not just an issue to be solved and championed by women. It affects us all hence we found it important for us to create a space where both women and men can get together and start ideating for solutions to change the current status quo. We live in a mixed gender society and therefore the conversation cannot happen with women alone” says Jabulile Gwala, Founder of In Good Company.
