In September, Duma Works powered its first ever Women in Leadership breakfast held at the Newscafe in Adlife plaza, Kilimani. The purpose of the event was to look at the issues surrounding what leadership looks like in Kenya in 2017 from a woman’s perspective, and highlight lessons that can be learnt and taught to the next generation of women leaders.
For the session, we were joined by a group of 31 women leaders in Kenya (as well as some mentees!), and 5 panelists.
The panel consisted of: Dr. Laila Macharia, Serial Entrepreneur and Board Member at Centum and Barclays Kenya, Wambui Kinya, Chief Strategy Officer at Andela and ThoughtWorks, Esther Ndeti, Executive Director at EAVCA, Njoki Ndegwa, Co-Founder at Life Mastery Solutions and, Joyce Mbaya-Ikiao, Entrepreneur, Trainer, Management Consultant, Author of GIBÉBÉ, and Founder of Zydii Ltd.
We’ve documented some of the key takeaways from the event for your reading pleasure. 🙂
