Nosotras Women Connecting Legacy - Conference
Nosotras Women Connecting is a platform movement that advocates
for gender equality and inclusion by connecting pioneering girls and women with well-established female leaders in a mentoring space to empower them in order to strengthen their entrepreneurial, leadership and soft skills for them to become the new impact leaders of their communities.
This initiative does this through: Leadership Workshops for girls and young female entrepreneurs, using artistic and storytelling strategies; News & Features – a work toward media equality to amplify women’s voices; and an annual TED Level Conference with outstanding female leaders both from Costa Rica and Latin America.
This year, August 2019, Nosotras Women Connecting is partnering us (Millennial Legacy) in Kenya, to kick-start the implementation of this initiative on a global scale to enhance the capacity of young women across the globe through creative collaboration that will empower them to become the new impact leaders of the world.
Women Change Makers
In this annual conference in Kenya, we shall hold workshops (entrepreneurship lab), conference, and competition for 20 selected women-run and women-owned smallscale businesses with potential for scalability in the long run. We are also targeting 300 participants for our conference and to attend the competition. The workshop and the conference are scheduled to take place between 12th and 16th August 2019 in Kisumu City, Kenya.
Nosotras Women Connecting International is partly funded by our primary grant-maker, IREX (International Research & Exchanges Board) through the Community Solutions Program. We are seeking more partners to propel the experience of these young women through collaborative engagements before, during, and after the conference. Millennial Legacy (a business consultancy) is partnering with an international women-led organization in Costa Rica; Fábrica de Historias, to bring a business/entrepreneurship LAB in Kisumu (women entrepreneurship workshop and leadership conference in Kisumu-Kenya).
A leadership conference with special feature of successful women leaders in business and political organization as well as international speakers such as Marysela Zamora and Diedre Combs
