The birth of the AWC.

The inaugural edition of the Africa Women Conference (AWC) was held at the Hilton hotel, Queens New York on the 8th – 11th March 2018. The choice of New York as location for the AWC inauguration was a strategic decision as the UNNGO CSW62 commenced immediately afterwards and this enabled the delegates who already had interest in the CSW join other women from across the globe in the summit.

The AWC was brought back home to Africa, as the second edition took place in Windhoek Namibia on the 22nd – 24th November 2018.
