6th Annual Women in Politics Africa Conference 2014 Johannesburg

  • Conference Call
  • The Intel­li­gence Trans­fer Cen­tre is ask­ing you to join some of the most pow­er­ful women in pol­i­tics at the 6th Annual Women in Pol­i­tics Africa Con­fer­ence on Octo­ber 29 – 30, 2014 at the Ind­aba Hotel in Johan­nes­burg, South Africa.

    Last year, Hon Cde Eunice Iipinge men­tioned in her pre­sen­ta­tion that “Gen­der equal­ity and women empow­er­ment are human rights that lie at the heart of devel­op­ment and the achieve­ment of the MDG’s. Women are sys­tem­at­i­cally sub­jected to vio­lence, mar­gin­al­i­sa­tion and dis­em­pow­er­ment prac­tices. In order to be more respon­sive to women empow­er­ment and lead­er­ship, we need to be more respon­sive to women improve­ment of con­di­tions, stan­dards, events and gen­eral per­spec­tives of life. Let us unite in erad­i­cat­ing all dis­em­pow­er­ment practices”

    What makes this year unique is that we have not only top lead­ers in Africa speak­ing, but we have nego­ti­ated fan­tas­tic hotel rates to ensure you are able to relax and stay over dur­ing the conference.
