Women in Africa (WIA) Young Leaders Program 2024

The WIA Young Leaders Program aims at supporting and highlighting young African women leaders who will play a major role in the African revolution.

This year, 10 leaders will benefit from a tailor-made training program that will focus on women’s leadership and the skills of tomorrow. They will be supported by renowned mentors and will have the opportunity to live an immersive experience through a business trip in a world economic capital city. This trip will allow them to access a high-level professional network, be trained, meet experts from their sectors and benefit from high visibility at international events.


The WIA Young Leaders program will be an opportunity to:

  • Connect with high-level personalities and mentors such as CEOs, ministers, journalists, business or public figures, and serial entrepreneurs
  • Be trained on boards, media training, career coaching and other customized training
  • Benefit from international media visibility
