The Goal

Harnessing African and Diaspora women's legal expertise for law and development by providing networking opportunities to prepare the next generation of women in law.

A structured mentoring program where both mentors and mentees can positively impact each other’s lives. Both parties to the mentoring relationship are givers and winners.

Our Strategy

Engaging in intentional mentoring through various programs to foster strong professional relationships among women.

 

Preparing a strong pan-African network of women thought leaders.

 

​Advancing gender equality and leadership across the legal professions.

The Motivation 

In 1995, I walked into a hair salon in Accra, Ghana. As I waited for my turn, I flipped through the rugged and torn magazines on a table nearby. Amongst the magazines was an Ebony magazine. That edition had a section highlighting the twenty most influential black people under the age of thirty. My eyes were drawn to one young lady named Nanette Graham, 29 years old, with a Ph.D. in Criminology and Assistant Professor at the University of Nebraska at that time.

Early interventions through structured mentorship can transform the lives and leadership potential of young girls and women.
