Nom­i­nate an in­spir­ing woman

CityPress - - Careers -

The 36th Busi­ness­woman of the Year Awards, hosted by the Busi­ness­women’s As­so­ci­a­tion of SA (Bwasa) and spon­sored by Sa­sol, is call­ing on you to nom­i­nate the women around you who in­spire and con­trib­ute to their com­mu­ni­ties.

If you are a fab­u­lous busi­ness­woman, why not nom­i­nate your­self!

The awards recog­nise women who are play­ing their part to up­lift the women around them, both in their com­mu­ni­ties and busi­nesses. Nom­i­nees should also be en­gaged in grow­ing the econ­omy in an eq­ui­table way.

This year, Bwasa has added an ad­di­tional three cat­e­gories – women in so­cial en­trepreneur­ship, in education and in sci­ence.

The orig­i­nal three cat­e­gories cover women work­ing in the govern­ment, cor­po­rate and en­tre­pre­neur­ial spa­ces.

Last year’s win­ners in their re­spec­tive cat­e­gories were: Tem­bela Kulu, Gaut­eng pro­vin­cial man­ager at the Pas­sen­ger Rail Agency of SA; Nosipho Si­wisaDa­masane, the CEO of Richards Bay Coal Ter­mi­nal; and Lee den Hond, the owner of Blue Plat­inum Events.

In­clude the fol­low­ing in the ap­pli­ca­tion for nom­i­na­tion:

Why the nom­i­nee should be con­sid­ered in the cat­e­gory; and

What the nom­i­nee has achieved in her sphere of in­flu­ence.

Nom­i­nees will need to de­scribe their busi­ness ob­jec­tives, how they have over­come ob­sta­cles to suc­cess and how they have risen to the chal­lenges they have faced.

The nom­i­nee’s val­ues, and how th­ese are re­flected in her or­gan­i­sa­tion, will also be as­sessed, as well as how she has played a part in the suc­cess of oth­ers.

En­tries for this year’s awards close on April 22. The awards take place on Au­gust 26. To en­ter, call 0860 99 9924 / 011 484 4945, or email
