There was "creative feminine energy this Mother's Day developing BMF Equity #strategy to tackle inequalities"   this past weekend as #BMFWomen gathered for a Gender Desk Strategy Development

These are some of the quotes that we got from the #BMFWomen strategy session:

'Are women leaders hard to find? No, look at our homes, we run it. So why are industries so protected from us?'

'Women must exercise courage, push boundaries and claim their spaces'

'U have 2 remove who u are as a woman, to survive in a male space.  Same goes for Western spaces 4 Africans'

'Don't follow the crowd, let the crowd follow you!'

'We did not inherit the earth from our parents, we r borrowing it from our children'

'Women must exercise courage, push boundaries and claim their spaces'

'The percentage of black female has remained below 5% over the years'

'Women leaders need to be authentic not bring ur true self to the party - don't change who u are to be in a leadership position'


Awesome facilitating an ingenious gender equity strategy . Transformation journey continues!


A special thank you to #BMFWomen for spending the weekend crafting interventions to advance women
