okayafrica.com – She Leads Africa is a social enterprise that supports young African women and their journey towards professional success. Okayafrica is excited to be a media partner for the New York stop of their SheHive Tour, SheHive NYC, from June 2-5, 2016.
The four-day boot camp will bring together young female professionals and entrepreneurs to learn new business skills, network with their peers and connect directly with potential mentors and investors.
From looking further into starting a business or launching a career in Africa, SheHive NYC aims to reconnect participants with the continent by providing a space for them to meet and network with fellow young, ambitious African women living in the US.
“In the US and UK, men dominate the business and corporate landscape but with so many new industries being created in Africa and for communities in the diaspora, we have the opportunity to change things now,” She Leads Africa co-founder, Afua Osei, says in a statement. “Young women should be encouraged to take leadership roles in startups and corporate organizations and supported along their journey towards professional success. It doesn’t matter if you’re first generation, a recent expat or African American, we all have a shared history and opportunity to make things better.”
