The discussions, facilitated by Alice Apostoly, Co-Director of the Gender in Geopolitics Institute, will focus on gender, climate, and women’s leadership issues, with a particular focus on initiatives implemented in Francophone Africa.

The side event will bring together committed personalities:


  • Oumou Salif Touré (Coordinator of the Global Media Campaign to End FGM)
  • Marie Louise Baricako (Chairperson and Founder of the Inamahoro Movement – Women and Girls for Peace & Security)
  • Assalama Maikellema Grema Ari (President of the Committee of Young Female Leaders)
