Standard Bank Top Women


Standard Bank is very excited about this partnership because it aligns with our values; gender-empowerment of diversity, of inclusion. We genuinely believe that when you empower women you empower the organisation, you empower the nation and certainly our continent of Africa.

– Sola David-Borha, Chief Executive Africa Regions, Standard Bank

I’m very encouraged at the efforts continuously by Standard Bank Top Women to ensure that Awareness and Advancement of Gender Equity are championed. I’m proud to partner and be a part of the Top Women Conference to converse, collaborate and celebrate women in entrepreneurship and business as we tackle sustainable and innovative solutions.

– Vuyo Dubese, African millennial in media and technology

Shining a spotlight on South Africa’s leading women in business and government and also in celebrating contributions of organisations that have made some really big strides in terms of creating a gender-equal South Africa.

– Carol Tshabalala, Award-Winning Sportscaster

It’s amazing being at this conference and seeing people in their own bodies, in their own lives taking control feeling strong, going what’s my next, what am I doing, how do I follow my passion. And that is just such a delight to be around all this amazing energy.

– Kate Emmerson, Director of Quick Shift Deva pty ltd.
