The African Women’s Leadership Conference at Wellesley College is a first-of-its-kind convening of some of the most influential voices in African women’s leadership—from education and politics, health and technology, entertainment and the law.

Organized by Wellesley College in collaboration with the Mastercard Foundation, this timely and important conference will expand our understanding of the many ways women leaders are transforming their communities and their nations; it promises to advance thought leadership and provide opportunities to learn from the women who are making a difference not only across Africa but around the world.

In lectures, breakout sessions, and informal discussions, attendees will explore what women’s leadership looks like through the lens of four key leadership competencies—confidence, creativity, courage, and resilience—leading to a deeper appreciation of the challenges African women leaders face and offering productive strategies for addressing them.

    I will say Mama Gugu +27715529472 was heaven sent, stressed late in the night and failing to get sleep, i was just online scrolling through to destruct my self from the endless thoughts, then i read about a lady that was talking about how Mama Gugu had helped her and i was going through similar situation she had mentioned. I was working tirelessly and yet i was not being appreciated at work,i worked long in the company but those that came after got promoted and i remained in the same position,i needed that promotion, salary increase because i was earning little and barely saving anything from my income. What stressed me the most is having nothing to show or any achievements for the so many years i have worked. The new year has started and i needed to change. So i saved Mama’s number +27 616 956 189 and phoned her in the morning,later that evening i went to see her,she simply cleansed me using spiritual oil,then gave me a traditional band to wear, performed prayers following the instructions she gave me.My year has started off on a good side,connections i never had,promotion,progress is just going on and on. Thank you so much Mama. Sharing this might help someone else like it has helped me,take time and consult with Mama Gugu she will help you.


    If the name of mzee”s Ugandan tutor is Ugandan, then it cannot be Serewano. The spelling would have to be Serwano. Unless he was an outsider Ugandan. Plus that popular skill The said Ugandan taught the mzee could something called called the Western Jazz aka kakyabali, you could look it up. It comes from the western part of Uganda. And boy or boy, it”s a skill to write home about if you master it, for it always delivers. Ask them Ugandan ladies who have had the opportunity of a well-measured ounce of it. Otherwise, nice read as always. That mzee is sure something, so much so I would want to drop by when over in Nairobi just to chat with him about nothing in particular. He can be a really cool conversationalist when you are not trying to motion the conversation towards a certain angle. Wow. Interesting guy. 0
