#AfterOfficeHours with Mercy Kyallo

#AfterOfficeHours with Mercy Kyallo

World over, March 8 is commemorated as International Women’s Day. The 2022 celebrations were themed Break the Bias, with everyone being called upon to imagine a gender-equal world, free of prejudice, stereotypes, and discrimination.

This year’s Women’s Day and month came at such a time when women’s empowerment has taken center stage in most African countries hence the need to hear the stories of more women entrepreneurs who have broken barriers on gender biases in businesses as well as women leading industries today while paving the way for the next generation.

In line with this, join us for the #AfterOfficeHours Session with Mercy Kyallo, CEO and Founder Yallo Leather as she shares with us the biases she has experienced as a young black woman entrepreneur in her field.

Mercy will also walk us through her entrepreneurship journey, how she found a footing in the leather industry, an industry that is slightly untapped into yet according to The World Bank,  the world trade in leather is currently growing and is estimated at more than $100 billion a year and the demand for leather and leather products is growing faster than supply.

You don’t want to miss out!

When: Thurs, 31st March
Where: Nairobi Garage, 7th Floor, Pinetree Plaza, off Ngong’ Road
