Africa Open for Business Summit:
Shaping the Future of Business, Climate Action,
and Women’s Empowerment


Groundbreaking event that’s set to redefine the future of business, ignite climate action, and empower women! The 5th Africa Open for Business Summite on September 21, 2023.

Under the theme
“Women of Africa and the Diaspora and the Fight for Climate Justice,” this year’s summit will take place at the iconic Armenian Church in the heart of New York City.

Dr. Djibril Diallo, the dynamic President and CEO of ARDN (African Renaissance And Diaspora Network),

is enthusiastic about the upcoming summit. He stated,

 “Our Summit is at the forefront of one of the most critical challenges of our time – Climate Justice. The remarkable individuals at this summit aren’t just talking; they’re actively driving change and proving that the fight against climate change knows no boundaries.”

He emphasized,
“Africa Open for Business also aligns with the Pathway to Solutions Initiative, supporting the realization of
Sustainable Development Goals.”

The summit featured an impressive lineup of speakers,
including Guest of Honor
 Nomusa Dube-Ncube,
Premier of KwaZulu-Natal,
 Republic of South Africa;

Eric Muli,
CEO of Lipalater, Kenya;

the Honorable Rita Jo Lewis,
President & Chair of Export/Import Bank (USA);

Idrissa Doucoure,
 CEO of GCIB Africa;

Samson Arega
 of Ethiopian Airlines;
Fatma Samoura,
 Secretary General of FIFA.


The summit’s focus included sustainable corporate practices, expanding job opportunities in Africa and its diaspora, and harnessing diverse perspectives to shape the future of business, trade, and development across Africa.

 Its central mission is to drive women’s leadership in the private sector and create equal opportunities for women and girls amid the challenges posed by climate change.

Dr. Djibril Diallo highlighted the collaborative efforts that made this visionary summit possible, inviting interested participants to register through their user-friendly online platform and be part of a historic difference at the Africa Open for Business Summit.

This is more than just a summit; it’s a beacon of hope, a catalyst for change, and proof of the extraordinary potential when
visionary minds unite.

Red Card Pledge
Red Card Pledge




The FIFA Women's World Cup 2019, hosted by France, has highlighted women's outstanding achievements in sports and generated enthusiasm on all continents.

 Yet while the world applauded the skills of women on the pitch, around the globe billions of women and girls were experiencing and still experience numerous forms of discrimination and violence too often disregarded.

 They are deprived of basic rights proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, denied opportunities, and suffer physica
l and emotional abuse.

 It prevents them from living truly fulfilling lives and also hampers social, economic and health progress for all human beings.

This is why several teams engaged in the Cup decided, with the support of FIFA, to give a red card to all forms of discrimination and violence against women and girls everywhere in the world, and to invite men and women all over the world to follow suit.

Together with
UN Women,
 the French Presidential Council for Africa
 and the
they call for signing the
"Equal Light"
appeal and pledge and living up to that commitment.

If you are ready, add your name.

A red card in soccer spotlights and helps prevent unfair
or dangerous behaviour.

We, therefore, give the RED CARD to discrimination and violence against women and girls in all forms and in all countries.

We commend all governments for committing on 25 September 2015 at the United Nations to achieve - by 2030 at the latest
- 17 "Sustainable Development Goals"

 in order to end poverty and hunger; reduce inequality; build peaceful, just and inclusive societies; protect the planet and its natural resources; and generate decent work for all.

​We appeal to women and men around the globe to help reach Goal number 5 for achieving gender equality everywhere and empowering all women and girls.

​We urge individuals, associations, enterprises, local and regional authorities, governments and intergovernmental bodies - to make this an absolute priority.
It is long overdue, and it is a prerequisite for reaching other
Sustainable Development Goals.

​We pledge to fully respect every other human being, regardless of gender, culture, colour, language, social origin, birth, property or religion, hence to put an end to all forms of discrimination and violence against
 women and girls.

​This will enable everyone to stand together in an Equal Light of progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals
