Colleen Larsen, CE of Business Engage, talks to THANDO PATO
about why they are taking the Gender Mainstreaming Awards across
Africa, and the challenges around gender parity on the continent.

“We believe that the best way to influence change is to strengthen and grow the current conversations; then couple that with deliberate actions.”
