The WeLead Conference is not a normal conference. While the average conference focuses on proceedings and events that occur during its agenda or programme, WeLead places its focus on conversation, growing your network and also on what happens after the conference closes. By looking beyond the programme and actively working to help delegates affect change in their lives and workplaces, WeLead celebrates and highlights the extensive women’s leadership potential that exists on the African continent.
The WeLead Women’s Leadership programmes, including the WeLead Conference, satellite events and other initiatives, feature a variety of keynote speakers, panel discussions and facilitated workshops that enable effective dialogue. With an emphasis on showcasing accessible and easily relatable stories from a wide range of women in business and society, WeLead creates opportunities for real conversation to create real change.
But WeLead moves beyond the conference and networking events, taking the conversation on women’s leadership to a variety of sectors and through a wide range of mediums.
Through other events like WiredWomen, InspiredTeachers and the WeLead Women’s Leadership range of workshops, WeLead works to inspire and highlight leaders in a range of workplaces, industries and social spaces.
By taking the women’s leadership conversation online, WeLead opens up the dialogue to the world, encouraging rigorous and dynamic debate around pertinent issues. The weekly #welead chats on Twitter, coordinated by QualityLife Company, offer a space for anyone to participate and learn from some of South Africa’s most prominent and active leaders (as well as shining a light on some of our still undiscovered rising stars).
