This year’s event features a bumper line-up of very exciting speakers who are bringing a wealth of knowledge to the table, addressing extremely pertinent, timely topics. In fact, it’s setting a brand-new benchmark for summits of this nature in more ways than one.
The celebrated female professionals who will be addressing the 10000+ confirmed delegates at the upcoming virtual summit on the 6th and 7th of October 2021 have each contributed to economic transformation and sustainable development throughout their careers, forging the way head despite the numerous challenges they had to overcome along the way.

Not to mention CEOs Ipeleng Mkhari (Motseng Investment Holdings), Faith Khanyile (WDBIH), Yolanda Cuba (MTN), Mariana Moura Santos (Chicas Poderosas), programme specialist Ayanda Mvimbi (UN Women), deputy representative Dr Hazel Gooding (UN Women), CFO Welela Dawit (GE Africa), South African wheelchair tennis player Kgothatso Montjane and many (many!) more.
Virtual events like the Standard Bank Top Women Virtual Summit are currently a wonderful alternative to in-person events because of high attendance rates, ease of access from any location, and, most importantly, the safety it offers delegates, speakers and award nominees during the current pandemic.
Best of all – even though you join in on the action from the comfort of your personal computer screen or mobile you will still be able to network with like-minded professionals that share your interests during and after the event to develop effective personal and professional relationships thanks to the tech-forward platform on which it is hosted.
