The World Economic Forum and the Oliver Wyman Forum report that “women have been hit hard by the harsh conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic causing them to adapt to new realities.” These new realities, in our opinion, require a new level of commitment to engaging, empowering and recognizing women, especially those that are blazing the trail and setting new records.
The Peak Performing Women Project is the vehicle for driving a renewed commitment to empowering, engaging and recognizing women in their quest for delivering excellence in a post-pandemic world based on Goal 5 of the Sustainable Development Goals. The project aims to equip women to deliver excellence as career professionals, entrepreneurs, social innovators, political office holders and in their personal lives. It will enable more women to live beyond misperceptions, stereotypes and misplaced emotions that could limit the God-given exceptional nature that is within the woman for the development of humanity.
The intervention that began with The Peak Performing Woman Series and The Peak Performing Woman Interactive Session has lead us to bring women together across Africa for a time of connection, capacity development and celebration at The Peak Performing Woman of The Year 2023.
The Peak Performing Woman’s Companion was therefore curated to serve as a personal day-to-day life-guide for women who are answering the call to rise up as Economic Reformers – women that will reshape the economy from a state of hopelessness and helplessness to a state of prosperity. It is curated for Disruptors – women that can reconstruct the indices of growth and have the courage to break records across industries, structures, and systems. Women who will shatter the trappings of misperceptions and the misdirection of cultural entanglements. It is curated for Catalysts – Women who are committed to accelerating their growth in their pursuit of greatness. These are women who are not only seeking a seat at the table but are desirous of making their own table and setting up to stimulate socio-economic growth. With The Peak Performing Woman Project, we are supporting SDG #5 with Inclusive Acceleration for all women across Africa and the globe.
