nzinga effect

The Nzinga Effect is a digital publication and three-day gathering, created to celebrate the stories of African women and women of African descent. The goal is to share with the world what African women are doing, to illustrate the richness and diversity of that work and through the event, to build new relationships that can generate social impact.

The small team behind The Nzinga Effect is eager explore how data may be used to catalyze meaningful relationships and collaboration and add depth and context to our videos and stories from the conference. It is currently seeking support from governments, international organizations and the private sector across Africa and around the world who believe in championing Africa’s hardest working asset: its women.

This collaborative is active in Ghana and Rwanda.
