WOMAN 2.1 SUMMIT

the

extraordinary impact 2012 PHOTO REPORT “To us, empowerment is not giving women new power; women already have power to become whatever they want to. Women have enough power, in the wealth of their talents and knowledge, to work on their dreams gracefully and magnificently. WOMAN 2.1 Summit develops and encourages women to be their best truest self and to become more relevant in the 21st century by taking advantage of new opportunities. Since the beginning of time, whenever a woman becomes her best she transforms generations and amazes the world. And we think that's powerful and empowering”


From the ambitious student, to the thriving entrepreneur, the accomplished business owner and the top corporate executive, WOMAN 2.1 Summit 2012 witnessed the coming together of thousands of aspirational women from diverse backgrounds last October at two venues in Kumasi and Accra. Under the overarching theme “Do The Extraordinary”, the speakers through story-driven keynote presentations and interactive panels, brought to the main stage the issues relevant to the 21st century woman and Africa’s emerging transformation. This photo report highlights memorable moments at the summit and feedback from attendees.
