  • Her Excellency Hilda Suka-Mafudze, the Permanent Representative of the African Union to the United States of America
  • LaTosha Brown, an American Community Organizer, Political Strategist, Consultant, and Visionary

We are planning for a night of celebration and reflection on the past 14 years of growing and sharing the vision of IBWPPI which is to change the world by making life better for women globally, through acts of kindness and good public policy.
