Women In Africa
Africa is the only region in the world where more women than men choose the path of entrepreneurship, a reality accompanied by the Women in Africa Philanthropy Foundation, which we are proud to support. To open the field of possibilities to this feminine dynamic will have an undeniable impact on the future of the continent.
Chief Executive Officer of Societe Generale Group
Women are the driving force of African economies and are changing the future of the continent. Supporting them in their desire to undertake and promoting them is a sustainable commitment for African and international economies.
The Women In Africa Philanthropy Foundation understands, supports and accompanies African women entrepreneurs and promotes the spread of education in the field of economic development, and more specifically the training of future creators of innovative companies.
Societe Generale has committed itself alongside the foundation to support women's entrepreneurship in Africa.
Africa is moving, creating, innovating. During the various forums that I organised, I met great leaders, ultra-connected startuppers, entrepreneurs. I wanted to use my expertise to help them go further. With Women In Africa, we create a pool of female talent.
Founder of Women In Africa
We have an excellent network of women in Africa and around the world as well as strong relationships with companies and organisations. Which means that there is no limit to what we can achieve to ensure the empowerment of women in Africa.
