This conference is a hallmark not only of our 40th anniversary, but of our reform. It is structured to highlight forward-looking issues, to bridge sectors, to foster results-oriented discussions, and to share joy in our work together. The topic of the conference was chosen carefully. The issue of gender and African development goes back to the early years of ECA's work. In response to a groundswell of African women seeking gender equality, ECA began its first formal women in development program in 1971.
