About Wisdom Exchange

Empower Women in Africa

Wisdom Exchange tv is an educational resource to aid African women to learn, lead and succeed in life, business, and community. It is a forum where women of all disciplines will be inspired from the achievements of African women, trailblazers, pioneers and leaders of many, in business, education, philanthropy and politics. These are the women that are the Change Agents of African companies, communities, countries and continent. They will inspire us to stretch our vision of what we can do, and what WE can be. Strategies and tactics will be shared as each woman imparts ‘HOW TO’ insights in her area of expertise. Leadership lessons from the front lines will also provide an opportunity for peers and future leaders to learn on what to avoid and what to do.  This is not a profile site, but an education resource where African women lead the way for other Africans.

New interviews and Expert Perspective blogs will be updated regularly with the insights of the women leaders of today for tomorrow.

The site focuses on interviewing African Women so they can provide insight to other African Women, however, we have a special segment called Ripple Effect which highlights international women create a positive ripple effect in Africa, particularly for women and children. These international women  donate time, money and expertise to right the injustices of women and children’s circumstances.

Subscribing is FREE, and ensures subscribers are updated as each new episode is posted.

The information is provided in video, audio and written format to accommodate diverse technology capabilities.



Women Leaders of Tomorrow


The Wisdom Exchange mission is to invest in, inspire and develop the African women leaders of today for tomorrow. If more women obtain a higher education, it will have a positive rippling effect to the family, business and communities. Women’s insight, perspective and determination is what makes an investment in a their education a way of circumventing the social injustices while promoting their gifts for the community, country and continent to appreciate.

Working Together to Expand Possibilities

The Wisdom Exchange TV not only shares African women’s insights and leadership strategies, but it is an opportunity for people outside the continent to see the realm of investment, business and leadership possibilities that exist in Africa. Africa is a place of strength, and although each country is unique, each country has unique possibilities.
