Board Networking Event

TheBoardroom Africa promotes the exceptional female talent of its diverse members to boards across the continent. As part of our work to accelerate and sustain your success, we host bi-annual board networking events to match board-ready female executives from across Africa with leading African and multinational companies in search of new board members. These events facilitate relationships between top female talent and businesses seeking to diversify their boards and improve their overall business performance. The board networking event is anchored in our mission to ensure that we are consistent in showcasing talent.
