Africa.com hosted its first hybrid event on 23 June 2022. The event featured a roundtable discussion live from the Intare Conference Center, Gasabo Room in Kigali, Rwanda. Five panelists came together to promote equity & innovation through health, science, and technology in Africa, while also highlighting how to remove barriers facing so many African women and girls. The panelists were in Kigali taking part in sideline events of the 26th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, and the Kigali Summit on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases. Though our time was limited to just under 1-hour, the discussion was full of candor, openness, and sincerity. Africa.com conducted several live polls where attendees were asked to participate from their smartphone or computer to enter their response to several questions during and after the event. When asked to select what they thought was most important when addressing the barriers that women and girls face, the poll revealed that ensuring women have a seat at the leadership table is most important. Second is economic & recovery growth plans, followed by health, and access to digital financial tools.
