The President of Sierra Leone, Retired Brigadier Julius Maada Bio gave his assent to the Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment Act (GEWE) 2022 in January 2023. This Act made provision for increased appointment of women to decision-making positions, gender equality in employment and training, improvement of women’s access to finance, and other related matters. As the GEWE Act 2022 is being implemented, now is
an opportune time to focus on activities that would elevate business and professional women

One of the areas in which women lag is digitalisation – access to digital finance, digital skills, digital opportunities and digital tools, for professional and business growth. The Government of Sierra Leone’s vision is ‘To transform Sierra Leone into an inclusive digital economy and society with a digitally empowered citizenry supporting sustainable economic development, democracy, national security, and good governance’ .

The Digital Her Conference: Digital Transformation for the Elevation of Women, is being organised to provide a platform for women to access information and tools for their professional and business growth.

Digital Her Conference, Sierra Leone, 21st, March 2024
