The Ask Her Talks

There are remarkable leaders in Africa at the community level. Women are at the heart of the response to AIDS, are overwhelmingly the frontline health care workers, are tackling the epidemic of sexual violence — and yet we rarely, if ever, hear from them. African women are leading the way, and are experts on what works, what kind of support is most effective, and what challenges need to be met.

The Ask Her Talks is a speaker series that gives the podium to five knowledgeable, dynamic and informed African women who speak about what happens when crises strike, and the role that philanthropy can play in a transformative response.

These women are engaged in courageous and sophisticated work that is making a tangible improvement in the human condition on the African continent. Their models of change are hard won, tested by urgent realities, and developed despite the many failures of governments and international leadership. Enlightening, stimulating and provocative — It’s time to hear directly from the experts.

For every Canadian who generously gives to important struggles around the globe.


Watch this space for details of the next series of Ask Her Talks in new cities, featuring an all-new slate of uniquely qualified, dynamic and experienced African women experts, activists, and grassroots leaders. Stay tuned!
