Having a BOLD
Gender inequality in Africa remains high, and progress toward gender parity has stagnated. This is a largely missed opportunity for African societies and for the continent’s growth prospects.
Leaders are born; yet many born female in rural parts of sub-Saharan Africa go unrecognized largely because, from day one, women and girls face a political, cultural, and social environment that inhibits their development into well-equipped female leaders.
In order to ensure women in Africa have the same opportunities as men to become leaders, all men, especially BOLD men must address the unique challenges facing women and girls to become the leaders they were born to be.
It’s more than a fashion statement, it’s a BOLD statement!
