Future of Work Africa – The Stilettos


Women keep making a difference in the world, women also continue to be awesomely employed in certain occupations that have been traditionally oriented toward women. “Future of work Africa: The Stilettos” will engage discussions generally on where women are today and how they can become more effective workers and leaders as we head into the future.

This conversation will bring some of the most dynamic women who have work experiences across the world to discuss major issues and topics that are important to women today. We will be exploring future of work trends, challenges and progresses made by women at work, the challenges of balancing work and family, the benefits and limitations of working outside the “office” and how females can transform their personal performance and empower themselves to perform above their current expectations.

There has been predictions that the number of women will continue to increase in the workforce. Women will continue to have primary responsibility for home and family matters, thus affecting work attendance negatively… There will be discussions around all these and much more.

As we prepare to join this conversation, the questions on our minds should be, what does the future hold for women in the workplace?
