My vision was to curate a culturally enriched authentic experience where a mosaic of women from the continent and the diaspora converge."

This year’s theme will join in commemoration with Ghana’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s declaration marking 2019 the “Year of Return” and 400 years of slavery. The country of Ghana has extended open arms to all African Americans and millions of African descendants in other countries, whose ancestors were enslaved, to return home this year as a memorial observation with Ghana leading the way.
Koshie Mills says; "This is an opportunity for everyone looking at Africa and its Diaspora to see how African women are not only beautiful, regal, intelligent, powerful and resilient, we are owning our own narrative and reclaiming our Queendom for the world to see. When we come together to exhibit pride in our heritage and celebrate one another, we are unmatched and unstoppable." The International Women of Power Luncheon is Mills’ brainchild to further stimulate more conversations and foster cultural exchange.
