Cape Town (South Africa) 31 May 2016: IEDC President Prof. Purg meets with Mrs. Madelein Mkunu, Founder and President of Leading Women of Africa (LWA) to discuss the possible cooperation between IEDC-Bled School of Management and Leading Women of Africa.
In order to create awareness that women leaders are an important factor of development, IEDC just recently organized the international conference ‘Women Leaders, Agents of Change in Europe’.
However, to make the statement that women matter even more clear and to encourage younger women to take over responsible positions and participate to the change for a better, more sustainable world, IEDC and its representatives, especially Prof. Danica Purg, IEDC, President, continuously create new connections between people and communities. On her recent business trip to South Africa, Prof. Purg met Mrs. Madelein Mkunu, Founder and President of Leading Women of Africa (LWA), a Pan-African Women organisation that has emerged as a recognized icon and symbol of hope for women in Africa. They discussed the cooperation between IEDC-Bled School of Management and Leading Women of Africa.
