Increased Recognition of Africa’s Female Entrepreneurs

Increased Recognition of Africa’s Female Entrepreneurs

AFJN is pleased to see successful African women increasingly receiving the recognition they deserve. In March, Forbes highlighted several female entrepreneurs whose stars are rising on the continent. In April, Google doodle honored late Ghanaian entrepreneur Esther Afua Ocloo who was an early advocate for women’s microfinance and the first female recipient of the African Prize for Leadership. While this is exciting news and a step in the right direction, we must admit there is more work to be done in ensuring successful African women are recognized for their influence. Please join us in committing to making sure more women like Esther Afua Ocloo are honored and remembered for their work.
