Women in Development Summit


Women in Development Summit

In 2018, we started Women in Development Summit for women in Nigeria who work for social good and global development across the African continent. As a Networking Event, it draws women in NGOs, International Development Organisations, Foundations, Social Enterprises, Tech Start Ups, Civil Societies, Social Impact Investors as well as the Government.

Previous Summits


The Summit featured Keynote Speeches, Panel Sessions, Mentorship Roundtable and Open Conversations – providing a great opportunity for women to understand the dynamics of the development sector, learn about women-focused opportunities and gain expert advice for their work. At the Summit, we also award Social Innovators who are under 25 years of age, working to impact their communities.
