Economic Development in Sub-Saharan Africa: Stories by Two Ambassadors

Tuesday, October 9th, 1:00-2:30 p.m. in TUC 400A&B

All faculty, staff and students are invited to attend.

UC alumna, H.E.Tebelelo Mazile Seretse, Ambassador for the Republic of Botswana, returns to campus with fellow ambassador H.E. Mwanaidi Sinare Maajar from the United Republic of Tanzania. Together these two women will share stories of their countries, empowerment of women, and social entrepreneurship in the rapidly changing landscape that is sub-Saharan Africa today.

Both of these women have distinguished careers, hold law degrees, are multi-lingual and have achieved success in senior administrative positions in countries where women’s roles have been limited by long tradition. Today they are the face of their country both in the United States and around the world. Their histories are remarkable tributes to intelligence, determination, and higher education.
