Each June since 2013, more than 20 influential women from the United States and East Africa have come together for a three-day conference at the Entusi Resort and Retreat Center to foster women’s empowerment, collaborative thinking, dialogue, and culture sharing.

The conference, co-chaired each year by a Ugandan and an American, has hosted women working in public, private, nonprofit and academic sectors. Past areas of focus have included topics such as work-life balance, goal setting, and gender rights. But more importantly, the Women’s Leadership Retreat has become a place for key leaders from around the globe to come together and tell their stories; to have a seat at the table and to grow their networks to impact positive change; to listen and think… and then act. And when they are finished listening and thinking at the Women’s Leadership Summit and begin to act…some amazing things happen!

Cynthia James is delighted to be a speaker and workshop provider at this year’s conference. Through the generosity of her network, she was able to raise funding to participate in the retreat by launching a successful Go Fund Me, which will assist her in living out a life long dream to visit Africa and work with women across the globe.
