Empowering women in business
11 November 2019 | Business
Themed ‘Thriving during Economic Downtime’, the event brought together women from all walks of life; those in business, corporate and women aspiring to get into business.
Bank Windhoek’s partnership with GWGB is aimed at training women entrepreneurs by enabling them to develop bankable ideas and equipping them with financial literacy throughout their entrepreneurial journey.
“We recognise that women are the backbone of our society and we will continue to support them in these and similar initiatives, which affords them an opportunity to network and grow,” said Bank Windhoek’s Carmen-Rae Bridgens.
Established by women for women, GWGB is a platform geared at creating a safe environment for women to lean in and learn about life and encourage each other to keep going no matter the circumstances.
“We are creating an environment that is safe for women to encourage each other and extract value from networking and sharing ideas, we believe that when you enable purpose in an individual, you unlock the power within that will influence and change society,” said GWGB’s Executive Director, Ujama Mushimba.
The women who attended the Jeans and Sneakers event said they had an awesome time.
