Businesswomen’s Association East London Branch
Online Member Directory
A platform for the inspiration and empowerment of women
The BWA is a non-profit, voluntary organisation committed to offering real value in the form of leading and training, connecting and supporting members.
The Association aims to be a united, non-racial business organisation that helps businesswomen to create connections on multiple dimensions – personal, professional and business – throughout their career. It also creates opportunities for women business owners to grow their businesses.
As a national association with regional branches, it also provides local and national forums where members can exchange ideas, be informed about topical issues and create business opportunities.
It acts as a lobby group on women’s business issues, highlighting and publicising not only the barriers to success that may still exist but also the many opportunities available to women in South Africa today.
Through strategic partnerships with sponsors, other non-profit organisations, leading companies and business schools, it provides on-going events and opportunities to advance the interests and needs of women in business.
BWA is established to promote opportunities to support, connect and grow women in business, through lobbying, mentoring, network, strategic alliances, and developing and recognising excellence in women.
The Businesswomen’s Association of South Africa is sponsored by Sasol nationally and the East London branch premises by ELMI.
