US-South Africa Women’s Business Forum


ANC Centennial in the Midwest 2012 Program

The South African Consulate General in partnership with the Women’s Business Development Center in Chicago will be hosting the United States-South Africa Women in Business Forum (USSAWBF) on the 24-28 October 2011. The USSAWBF will serve as a powerful new agent for progress on gender equality and women’s empowerment in business.  Although women in South Africa have continued to make visible progress, the trend remains slow and women tend to be under-represented in top positions. Empowering women in business in South Africa as well as the United States is a major step towards building stronger economies and solidifying a presence in an increasingly globally integrated world.  Women face many challenges in business, but with the new synergies and momentum that the USSAWBF brings, these challenges can be met with vigor and sustainability.
