Dot Finance Africa is Africa’s largest and most prestigious FinTech event. This is where financial institutions, established technology vendors and disruptive startups come together to build valuable new partnerships and define the future of finance in Africa. From payments to APIs, and blockchain to AI, Dot Finance Africa brings the latest technology innovations to the heart of African finance, serving as a catalyst for collaboration and coopetition between African financial firms and global FinTech innovators.
Following a highly successful debut at Nairobi, Dot Finance Africa is moving to Kigali, Rwanda in 2017. As Africa’s safest, cleanest and prettiest city – and as the capital of Rwanda, the rising star of the African economy – Kigali provides a perfect setting for the global FinTech community to converge at the heart of this fast-growing continent.
The idea for a Women and the Environment conference was informed by the environmental coverage published in Pacific Standard, an award-winning magazine published by the Miller-McCune Center for Research, Media, and Public Policy.
Women around the globe are disproportionately affected by climate change. Twenty-six million people around the globe have been displaced by climate change since 2010; 20 million of those climate refugees — more than 75% of them – are women. But women are not merely victims of climate change: when they are empowered, they are extremely effective agents of adaptation to climate and social change.
Join us on May 18 to meet the women who are shaping the future of our communities, and our planet with unrivaled insight and experience in the field.
The first Women and the Environment conference will be held in Santa Barbara, California – the birthplace of the modern environmental movement, Earth Day.
The Women and the Environment conference is supported by the Miller-McCune Center for Research, Media, and Public Policy, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to informing the public about the world’s most pressing social, economic, and environmental problems and helping solve them by advocating just and sustainable public policies.
