“In Africa there is a concept known as ‘ubuntu’ – the profound sense that we are human only through the humanity of others; that if we are to accomplish anything in this world it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievement of others.” ~ Nelson Mandela

AWE Awards

Recognizing Africans of Impact in the Diaspora

We are proud to provide a platform to celebrate and honor the talents, achievements and positive impact of African women in Europe in the community. Women who have taken risks, pushed limits, and broken ground in a wide variety of fields, celebrating their unique accomplishments.
