Forbes is looking for the most powerful women in Africa

Are you a young African woman who also happens to be a high-flying achiever excelling in your field of work? Then submit your nomination for the Forbes 20 Young Power Women In Africa 2014 list.

Currently in its fourth year, the Forbes list recognises young African women in their 20s and 30s in African business, technology, policy and media, academia, entertainment and politics ranked according to impact, media momentum, and spheres of influence.

“This is the age of the millennial, and young Africans in their 20s and 30s are more ambitious than ever before. They are building companies, taking crucial roles in government, championing social causes, and shaping the future of the continent,” said Mfonobong Nsehe, a Forbes correspondent for Africa.

Some of the women who have been featured in previous years include former parliamentary leader of the DA Lindiwe Mazibuko and CEO of the Shanduka Group Phuti Mahanyele.

Nominees must be citizens of and living in any African city. Nominations can be emailed to Nsehe on or tweeted to @MfonobongNsehe on or before the 27th of November.
