Power women from a diverse range of backgrounds and industries met at The Lyric at Gold Reef City to attend the first-ever Marie Claire South Africa Power Summit. Progressed by Audi and in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the Power Summit was a true celebration of the collective power of women.

With a line-up of some of South Africa’s most powerful women in the fields of business, politics, education, environment and technology, the Power Summit bought together incredible trailblazers, innovators and change-makers. The packed programme included keynote speakers, one-on-one interviews and panel discussions. The event brought together some of the most inspiring leaders and game-changers in South Africa, including Nomzamo Mbatha and Lindiwe Mazibuko, and the magic in the air was tangible.

In association with the Nelson Mandela Foundation, on Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday celebration, the combined following of the Power Summit reached over 25 million and the event in particular generated considerable social coverage from guests and speakers alike.
