Managing successful initiatives in the post covid context
The COVID 19 pandemic has created new needs of skills in the project management field. Project managers, like everyone else, must adapt to the new standard:
confinement, migration from physical workspace to virtual workspace, remote work, and so on. Despite this migration, the requirements in terms of results remain the same. During this, 1-hour workshop participants will have the opportunity to learn the basics of how to manage successful initiatives in this context. We will talk about setting aim and objectives, how to prepare and manage the budget, how to communicate our initiative, and finally how to monitor and evaluate the activities. The AU-EU Youth Cooperation Hub, delivering this workshop has been engaged since 2018 in remote work around Africa and Europe on Education and skills, Peace and security, Business & Entrepreneurship, Environment, and climate change, Governance, Digitalization, Culture arts & sports.

Gender Equality: what’s the status quo?
The status quo of gender equality in Africa refers to the current state of affairs as it is, or in other words, the oppression women receive to this moment. Women
are responsible for 60% of the work done globally, yet earn just 10% income and 1% of the property. In Africa, 70% of women are financially excluded. The continent has a US$42 billion financing gap between men and women. In addition, there exist many other causes for gender inequality in Africa being: lack of legal protection, lack of bodily autonomy, poor medical care, societal mindset, uneven
access to education…
