About Corporate Women in Leadership

The Corporate Women in Leadership is an initiative of FabAfriq PR which hosted its first edition in 2016. The conference aims at bridging the gap between women in top managerial positions in the corporate sector and younger women (and men) looking to learn, adopt and implement diverse strategies to achieve career growth. The conference has been hosted twice in Cameroon (2016, 2017) and once in Gabon (2017). To guarantee impact and career growth, the Corporate Women in Leadership has a Mentoring program which is a one on one exchange between participants who choose to become mentees and speakers who choose to become mentors. So far, the program has recorded over 20 successful mentees.
