She’s been called one of the most powerful women in the world, a description that carries as much controversy as cache.

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala moved from Nigeria’s finance minister to managing director of the World Bank, where she was the first female and black candidate to make a bid for the Banks’ presidency. During her tenure there, she became a fierce advocate for development in Africa, suggesting that business investment does more good than international aid.

When she returned to the Nigerian government, Okonjo-Iweala worked to eradicate corruption and improve transparency – a monumental task in a country rife with graft from the top down. The effort to change a culture from within left her vulnerable to criticism.

Find out how Okonjo-Iweala navigates these challenges when she joins The Stream tonight for an intimate conversation at 1930 GMT / 2030 WAT.
