Power to Empower
The Power to Empower conversations will be led by Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe, founder and CEO of AFI, with guests including: Julie Battilana, Harvard professor, social innovator and author of Power, for All; Madame Fatma Samoura, Secretary General of FIFA; Dr Leila Fourie, Group CEO of the JSE; and Nolitha Fakude, Chairperson of Anglo American and author of Boardroom Dancing. In addition to these prominent women in leadership, audiences can expect a performance by Lira and an installation by designers from AFI’s Fastrack project.
This August AFI is spotlighting women who are not only paving the way but who are actively involved in developing and mentoring the next generation of women leaders. AFI has chosen to make this a “virtual tea” because historically, afternoon tea was recognized as a space for women to find companionship and initiate projects that were both social and political in nature.
