Several notable individuals and organizations have been honoured at the recently concluded 2023 Visionary African Women Summit and Recognition Awards (VAWSA), which took place in Accra, Ghana.
What was the theme for this year’s VAWSA? And who organized it?
With the theme “Building women against all odds: Breaking barriers, building bridges,” the 2-day event took place on 22nd -23rd June 2023 at Ecobank Plc Head Office Accra, Ghana.
The Visionary African Women Summit was put together by the Lilian Ike Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organisation set up in 2019 with headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria, in partnership with ICS Africa Limited, a fast-growing Pan-African business and events solutions brand located in Accra Ghana.
The summit program was packed with interesting summit content including presentations and panel sessions that addressed the theme: Building Women against all Odds: Breaking Barriers, Building Bridges. Leading men and women from across the continent formed the tram of speakers and panelists that inspired the delegates in attendance.
In addition to being a forum to educate, empower and advocate for women to achieve their highest potential for a better society, the Visionary African Women Summit is also targeted at promoting peace and creating sustainable development in Africa.
The summit was highlighted by an awards event dubbed the Visionary African Women Recognition Awards which happened on the Day 2 of the event. It was a colourful night of African beauty and splendor as women delegates from across Africa represented the rich cultural heritage of the African continent in their state of fashion.
