Standard Bank Top Women
I would like to express my deepest appreciation from the bottom of my heart to Standard Bank and Topco Media for the recognition. It was a fabulous event and it is indeed fulfilling to see women thriving. Thank you for making me a part of the event and for awarding me with a lifetime achievement.
– Yvonne Chaka Chaka, South African Singer, Songwriter, Actress, Entrepreneur, Humanitarian and Top Women Ambassador
I can never thank you enough for the award that I won many years ago – Businesswoman of the Year (2013). It motivated me to work harder and, not only that, it was that award which led the World Trade Organisation to notice my name on Google. It has opened many doors. Today I serve as a B20 Germany co-Chair, under jurisdiction of the WTO. I really appreciate the recognition you are giving to women.
– Lynette Magase, CEO, Boniswa Corporate Solutions
My passion, commitment and contribution to the empowerment of women in South Africa led to me being the recipient of the Top Women Executive First Runner up in the Standard Bank Top Women Awards. This award has afforded me a greater platform to enhance my existing initiatives and develop new initiatives. It has also given me an opportunity to have a greater reach into our communities and also contribute to a changed perception of women in my workplace and beyond. I define success as “using your power to change lives for the better, to empower and inspire women to greatness”.
– Shaleenah Marie, Learning & Education Manager, Siemens
Over the last couple of years we have participated in Standard Bank Top Women Awards to get a check of how we compare with similar or like-minded companies. We have been hugely gratified that the thorough and rigorous evaluation process undertaken in the Awards process has found our company worthy of the award. This has given us the confidence in our strategies and plans. We can proudly and unapologetically display our transformation credentials including this award. The result is that we are a respected good corporate citizen because we have objective confirmation from a third party that what we do in the empowerment space has an impact and makes a difference in the economy. The awards ceremony provide a wonderful opportunity to be celebrated as a company that is committed to the realization of an inclusive economy. We are proud to have been recognised among the top companies that do this year-in and year-out.
– Dr Jerry Gule, Former General Manager, Total Sa (Pty) Ltd
Celebrating visionary organisations that prioritise gender empowerment as integral to their strategy for growth and success.
