2019 Ibrahim Governance Weekend

The 2019 Mo Ibrahim Foundation Annual Governance Weekend will be held at the Sofitel Hotel in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire from 5-7 April.

WPL will welcome women leaders to a series of sessions that WPL will be hosting on Sunday 7th of April as an official partner organisation of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation. This occasion will offer the opportunity for a select group of female decision-makers to interact and to exchange on best practice and knowledge of political decision-making. Discussions are held with the purpose of moving to action.

This is the Foundation’s flagship event, held annually in a different African country and bringing together key decision makers from across the continent and beyond.
This three-day event convenes prominent African political and business leaders, representatives from civil society, multilateral and regional institutions as well as Africa’s major international partners to debate issues of critical importance to Africa.
The weekend begins with a Leadership Ceremony, where last year they welcomed and celebrated the 2017 Laureate, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia.
A whole day is then dedicated to the Ibrahim Forum, a high-level discussion forum which tackles the challenges facing Africa and sets out priorities for action.
