Single Digital Issue: Forbes Africa March 2020


The March 2020 issue of FORBES AFRICA brings to you a list like no other! Presenting the first-ever compilation of Africa’s 50 Most Powerful Women. The unprecedented, unranked list features the continent’s leading women, drawn from business, politics, media, science, sports and public life, who are challenging the status quo and creating a trail on terrain where there was none. They are reshaping history, closing inequalities and pioneering new avenues of wealth creation and in turn, lifting others with them. Our research looked at Africa’s leading women across sectors and industries, as well as government agencies and non-profit institutions. We sifted through several recognition lists, conducted our own research in coming up with new names, and short-listed nominations that came in from our editorial teams across Africa, applying our own metrics of leadership, influence, consistency, and most importantly, impact. In addition to this list, this issue also features an important story on the effect of the coronavirus on corporate Africa. Also in the focus section, a story on the future of African mining. And a tennis match on African soil that brought together two legends and the world’s second-richest man. All this and more in the March issue of FORBES AFRICA, out now!

Please note that this issue will be delivered as a downloadable PDF
