Women in Leadership: Dora Poni Loro
May 6, 2021 @ 18:00 - 19:30 CEST
Join us for Women in Leadership with Dora Poni Loro!
At HerSpace, we are proud to be part of a collective and necessary effort to be active participants in helping women advance in their social, personal and professional lives. We have designed the Women in Leadership series as a way to amplify the voices, stories and experiences of women. Our featured women speakers have diverse backgrounds, have reached milestones in their careers, and have made an impact in their industry and communities. We all benefit when stories of challenges and wins are shared. We offer their stories, knowledge and insights to help empower you in your own journey.
Women in Leadership is a recurring event that will feature an inspirational female leader every month. If you would like to nominate a woman in your network as a way to honor her work, please reach out so our collection can grow with our community.
*This event is free for HerSpace Members*
This event is co-produced by HerSpace, Africa Connect and Diversify
