AZA Finance, a fintech company founded in Nairobi, in partnership with Beautiful Soul a digital leadership development platform is set to launch its African Women Leadership Programme on Thursday, November 11, 2021 at 5pm.
The programme, dubbed ‘Growing Africa’s Future Leaders in Fintech’, is aimed at increasing the percentage of African women in fintech, and to equip them with tools to increase their likelihood of reaching high management positions. The programme will bring together African women who are interested in the fintech sector and mentor, train and coach them.
So far, the about nine-month training programme has selected 250 women who have registered to be mentored and tomorrow’s launch will kick start the process. Other women who wished to join the training can participate in Thursday’s webinar to register and will get the opportunity to receive concrete ideas to spearhead their career.
According to the organizers, women, especially African women, face significant challenges in climbing the ladder of leadership positions in the fintech sector and they believe that providing foundational soft skills as well as career skills will equip them with the tools needed to succeed in their professional and personal life while creating a positive impact in the industry and the continent.
