Women In Africa

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.
Aude de Thuin Founder of Women In Africa
