About the event

Join us for an extraordinary event, "The Odyssey of What is Possible," where we celebrate the remarkable achievements of women across various fields who have boldly pushed boundaries in typically male-dominated and predominantly white industries. 

This event is not just about recognizing their successes, but also delving into the strategies and gameplay they employ to navigate these challenging landscapes.

Our lineup includes trailblazing women who have defied societal norms and shattered glass ceilings in fields ranging from policy, politics, diplomacy and entrepreneurship.

These women have not only excelled in their respective fields but have also paved the way for future generations of women to thrive.

In addition to these inspiring women, we are honored to welcome a male ally who plays a crucial role in supporting and empowering diverse women to push the agenda forward. His presence underscores the importance of allies in the fight for gender equality and diversity in the workplace.

Throughout the event, our speakers will share their firsthand experiences, discussing the real challenges they've faced and the strategies they've employed to overcome obstacles and achieve success. From cultivating a strong support network and mentorship opportunities to leveraging their unique strengths and amplifying their voices, these women have employed a variety of tactics to navigate the often turbulent waters of male-dominated industries.

But this event is not just about words – it's about action. 

Together, we will embark on a journey of exploration and empowerment, celebrating the incredible achievements of women while also inspiring action and advocacy for a more inclusive and equitable future for all.

  • Achaiso Ambali, The organiser of the first international salon for black owned businesses, in Belgium
