2018 LadiesFirst! Forum for Women in Leadership

LadiesFirst!2018 Highlights

On January 19th, 2018, 200 women gathered at Méstil Hotel & Residences to participate in a ground-breaking LadiesFirst! Forum for women in leadership. The event was organized by the Miss Uganda North America Leadership Program and sponsored by Equity Bank Uganda, NTV Uganda, Roma Furnishings Ltd and Méstil Hotel & Residences among others.

This was one big step for Ugandan women, where we had 25 influential women participate in empowering conversation with our audience. All discussions and speakers were a hit with the audience (not to mention the lovely snacks provided). Topics included equality, feminism, work and life balance, dating and marriage, entrepreneurship, self-motivation, personal branding and social media, and women’s health.
