Karua flies to London to design a Global Black Women Executive Leadership Program alongside other global leaders.
Martha Karua, a former running mate for the Azimio coalition, traveled to London, United Kingdom, to create the Global Black Women Executive Leadership Program with other world leaders.
Karua stated that the new program would find outstanding black women leaders from all around the world and connect them to the tools they need to develop solutions in a statement on Thursday, October 20.
She mentioned that Schmidt Futures, a nonprofit organization, and the Commonwealth organization were both sponsors of the program.
“For the last two days, I have been with other leaders from across the continent designing a Global Black Women Executive Leadership Program courtesy of Schmidt Futures and the Commonwealth organization.”
“The new initiative will identify talented black women leaders from around the world and connect them to each other and to the resources they need to design and drive transformative solutions to complex problems,” she noted.
Karua expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to discuss some of the issues African women faced and possible answers that could lead to social change.
” (I was) honoured to have had a chance to speak and share some of the complex challenges African women face and how to drive transformative change,” the NARC-Kenya party leader stated.
Karua’s trip to London comes at a time when the Azimio leader Raila Odinga, on Sunday, October 16, left the country for India on a ten-day visit.
The Azimio coalition has maintained a low profile since William Ruto assumed office and as they plan on how to keep his government in check.
