Many Professional African women of the Diaspora within Europe are faced with the double challenges of latent professional discrimination in their country of adoption and a governmental “blindness” on their existence in the country of origin. AWODIAG seeks to remedy these problems by bringing together Professional African Women in Diaspora from around the globe and Professional African Women living on the African Continent. AWODIAG will act as a lobbying body and professional think tank which seeks to address the issues of gender imbalances and racial discrimination within Europe.
