The 2019 Corporate Women In Leadership Summit, Dakar-Senegal

Women of all walks of life answered present, to interact, network and learn from this initiatory event in the country, which took place under the theme- “AN ALPHA FEMALE CHANGES EVERYTHING.”

The event which took place at the Radisson Blu Sea Plaza Hotel, Dakar-Senegal saw seven seasoned panelists head discussions in two panels, with panel one focused on building a stronger clan and panel two analyzing how to inspire change among the women leaders. The over one hundred women who were in attendance all benefitted from discussions, interactions and networking among themselves and their panelists who have internationally recognized credentials, like VALERIE RENARD- Founder of UPYA Conseils, EVELINE DIOH SIMPA (General Manager WIC Capital), NDEYE MAGUATTE DIOUF (Director in charge of the development of the private sector, Ministry of Economy, Planning and Corporation Senegal), MARIE ODILE SENE KANTOUSSAN (General Manager GCF Bourse) ZOHRA YASSINE(CEO and co-founder Flow Happiness Food,) and ROKHAYA SOW SAGNA-Human Resource Manager at SAHAM Insurance. The speakers shared their experiences, professional challenges and strategies in a bid to inspire young female leaders of tomorrow's corporate world.

After the first part of this summit which saw a welcome and discussions in panel one, there was a tea-break at 11:00 am, followed immediately by the panel two discussions which were moderated by Adeline Sede Kamga, Founder of the Corporate Women in Leadership and Fabafriq Magazine.

The conference ended at 2:00 pm local time with lunch and networking between speakers and participants, and also an air of great expectation for The Corporate Awards 2019 proper, scheduled to take place the same evening at the Radison Blu Sea Plaza Hotel.
As part one of The Corporate Women in Leadership closes in Dakar, and with such a high bar already set, one can hardly wait to witness the second part of the sixth edition of this leadership summit, scheduled for December 6th, 2019 at the Akwa Place Hotel Douala.
