Positive developments at the Ismaili Economic Forum included collaborative efforts by businesses to further women’s empowerment and financial literacy to prepare women for corporate board participation.

Over 500 delegates from the Jamats of Eastern, Central, and Southern Africa gathered for the launch of the Ismaili Economic Forum (IEF) held in Nairobi in April 2019. The Forum was organised to bring together Ismaili businesses, professionals, and entrepreneurs, to discuss and respond to rapid change in Africa and advancements in technology on the continent, and to build economic and knowledge capacity within the Jamat. The forum included workshops and sessions on the future of work, gender equality, innovation and creativity, strategy, succession planning, and more.
