South Africa's most influential women unite!
In 2007, over 250 women gathered in São Paulo, Brazil to network with fellow executives, make new business contacts and improve their career development perspectives at our Global Advancement of Women Conference. The feedback from our attendees was so tremendous, we are taking our Global Advancement of Women conference to Johannesburg, South Africa to share our findings and build relationships among professional women.
The South African Advancement of Women Conference will gather professional women who work for major global and South African based companies for an exploration of best practices, a dialogue on diversity, innovative strategies and concrete programs that make a difference in supporting women. The conference will ensure networking, learning and knowledge sharing in a safe environment.
