2020 Virtual Events
During the Commission on the status of women in March 2019 AWDF-USA convened its annual gathering for its Afriwomen hangout event. Over 30 African women gathered and discussed the importance of mentorship in career, youth philanthropy, mental health and well being. The event was attended by various AWDF-USA board members along with African women from across the diaspora as well as the continent.
