In a light, but serious manner, Alice Mogwe shares her stories of exclusion. Her journey of self-discovery has led to her three keys to self-leadership. These keys help her navigate her way through an often hostile, judgmental world. She lays bare the core of her being through personal accounts of discrimination, racism, sexism and how central the African value concept of botho is to her identity.

Ms Alice Mogwe is the Founder Director of Ditshwanelo, the Botswana Centre for Human Rights. Ditswanelo’s objective is the defense of human rights, in all its forms and mainly in Africa: it fights for political freedoms, abolishing the death penalty, minorities, women's rights and children, homosexuals, immigrants and refugees, deportees, of domestic workers.

With a legal background, she served as a consultant to several international development agencies including UNICEF and has been active in the field of gender and development for many years. Amongst the foremost civil society leaders in Botswana, she is a recipient of several international awards recognising her work as a woman leader and promoter of human rights.
