La Mode, a magazine renowned for fashion, beauty, lifestyle, entertainment, and inspiration, has expanded its scope to acknowledge the exceptional work and remarkable achievements of mid- and senior-level female professionals across Africa.

Introducing the magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential Leading African Women list, which highlights the voices and impacts of African women in corporate, political, and media sectors who are reshaping industries and challenging the status quo.

This edition showcases women from 4 African regions across 18 countries, selected based on the influence of their roles, impact, philanthropic initiatives, thought leadership, and career achievements.

The regional breakdown includes West Africa (74), East Africa (12), Southern Africa (12), and Central Africa (2).

Daniel Usidamen, Content Editor, remarked, “I believe that this list goes beyond celebrating these women, but is also an inspiration to women across Africa and beyond. It is about the power, drive, and contributions to the continent. Our goal is to make the voices of these women who have achieved so much but may not have received the recognition get what they deserve. We hope that this recognition will inspire more women to pursue their dreams, break barriers, and make a positive impact in their communities.”
