WOMAN IMPACT SUMMIT, THE VIRTUAL INTERNATIONAL EVENT FOR WOMEN


Within the framework of the AFRIMAC 2 project, the program "100 Women to change West Africa" was born to empower women, enhance their participation in economic initiatives and support entrepreneurship in West Africa and the Macaronesia islands. To present this initiative, the Woman Impact Summit has been created, a completely free online event whose objective is to give visibility and access to the women of the world in general and of Fuerteventura, the Canary Islands and West Africa in particular.

AFRIMAC 2, together with Radio ECCA and the Vice-Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Canary Islands Government, are in charge of organizing this international online event together with PROEXCA, Casa África and Heroikka.

The Woman Impact Summit mission is to share the different ways in which government institutions, the private sector and the regional leaders working on special initiatives for women address economic opportunities.

In the Canary Islands the programming is developed in schedule from 17.00 to 20.45 hours, except Tuesday 10 of November, changing the schedule from 15.00 to 18.45 hours.
