Women celebrated

Capricorn Private Wealth (CPW) hosted an exclusive stakeholder event for its female clients recently, were executive officer Chris Matthee said that the event was “about recognising the mettle that women have to drive change and make an impact, whilst ensuring that they remain inspired to keep going the extra mile”.
He said that is has been more than five years since introducing the unique Capricorn Private Wealth offering and that the bank remains dedicated to keeping this offering fresh, unique and relevant.
Dr Esperance Luvindao wrote a poem for the event in celebration of women and delivered it in dramatic style.
Other speakers included a trio of remarkable women who have made significant strides in their respective industries: Baronice Hans, Managing Director for Bank Windhoek; award-winning humanitarian and retired Head of Ophthalmology at the Windhoek Central Hospital and recipient of the 2022 Lions Humanitarian Award Dr Helena Ndume; and Dr Marisa Venter, General Practitioner with a special interest in Aesthetic Medicine and Dermatology, whose practice forms part of the Khomas Medical Group.
Hans said: “Given the time and place in which we find ourselves; with the rise of women in political office locally, regionally and internationally, and with women increasingly occupying their rightful place in the boardroom across the world, I believe the time is right for an event of this nature to take place in celebration of women who have made incredible contributions to the advancement of Namibia and her people through their chosen careers.”
