This inspired speech echoes her reverence for female entrepreneurs and leaders across the African continent, and her respect for the daily heroes that have been working on the frontline the past year. Methil expands on how the #LeadingWomenSumit brings together a unique collection of intrepid individuals, outlining how they tenaciously overcame the greatest odds the past 12 months, rebuilding new pathways and tackling the inequality exacerbated by the pandemic. On 8 and 9 March 2021, some of the globe’s foremost female innovators connected with audiences on a range of topics, highlighting ways to navigate the unchartered waters, through the power of the collective, based on their own real-world experiences.
