Rwanda launches the National Chapter of the African Women Leaders Network (AWLN)

The Rwanda administration launched the African Women Leaders Network (AWLN) during the Rwanda Women Leaders Network (RWLN) Summit held under the theme ‘Building the Next Generation of Women Leaders’, a great kick start of the International Women’s month.

The launch of the AWLN Rwanda Chapter was attended by over 250 women leaders from various sectors and backgrounds including high level government officials, representatives of institutions, women leaders from across generations, students, members from the private sector among others.

Rwanda Women Leaders Network was founded by the first lady of Rwanda ‘Jeannette Kagame’ in 2011 with the aim of serving as a platform for women leaders to provide peer learning, support, and mentoring of young women in different aspects of leadership including political, entrepreneurship, and community engagement.

During the event, the First Lady who graced the event urged members of the Rwanda Women Leaders Network (RWLN) to continue innovating and protecting the progress that has been made so that future generations can benefit and build on what has been achieved.

The launch of the AWLN Rwanda Chapter is a significant step towards building the next generation of women leaders who will play a crucial role in the development of their communities and countries.
