Did you know research shows that countries which neglect reducing gender imbalance, suffer more economically? Countries that tend to embrace gender diversification and equality prospers more as women tend to own around 48% of Micro-Small and Medium Entreprises. Which brings us to WIB-Kenya.
Now if there is an event that is worth your time; it’s the Women in Business awards. Why? This is because WIB-Kenya is an initiative that celebrates exceptional women in our society. This would be the ideal event to nominate your mother, sister, wife, daughter, boss, yourself or anyone else you admire and you think is worth being celebrated. It’s the one day when women from different fields come to support and celebrate each other. It’s the one day when we get to truly appreciate the milestones that we have covered in gender equality and women empowerment.
This is something really worth celebrating. Not just because it’s women but rather, we get to influence a whole new generation that anything they set their minds to, can be achieved. We get to tell a story of those who started with humble beginnings and now even the sky is no longer the limit. We get to give hope to the hopeless and tell that there is yet a chance to keep on fighting.
