Episode 116: From Polyglot, to Professor, Policy Advisor to Art Patron with Ekua Yankah Part 2

International Women's Day Greetings Glocal Citizens!
Did you know IWD was first celebrated in 1911? Commemoration of the date was the outgrowth of the suggestion by Clara Zetkin, a communist activist and advocate for women's rights at the International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen in 1910. It was first celebrated 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland.

For this 111th IWD and in the spirit of advocacy and empowerment, my guest is, and continues to be a woman to watch. She's a thought leader in international development with a passion for young people, health and innovation in Sub-Saharan Africa. Ekua Yankah, an Afro-German was born in Germany to Ghanaian parents; after living in cities across the globe, she is now based in Portugal.
