Diversity means business: Boosting the number of African women entrepreneurs

In this special edition, we’re in Marrakech for the first-ever 'Women in Africa Forum,' meeting the next generation of Africa's female entrepreneurs. But in a continent where many countries and traditional cultures still struggle with the notion of equality, we ask what needs to be done to increase opportunities for women in business. We also talk to Afua Osei, the co-founder of 'She Leads Africa,' an online community platform encouraging young African women to reach their professional targets.
