The Business Women’s Association (BWA) of Port Elizabeth announced the names of some of the top women in business in Nelson Mandela Bay on Friday, 11 May. The 18 businesswomen are finalists in the prestigious Regional Business Achiever Awards (RBAA) – which annually seeks to acknowledge excellence in the business, corporate, professional and social arena.
“It’s an exceptionally exciting time of the year as the BWA gears up to acknowledge all the phenomenal women in business in Port Elizabeth. A huge congratulations to everyone who was nominated – it’s an incredible accolade in itself. Our Regional Business Achievers Awards is indeed one of our flagship events and we wish all the finalists the very best for the journey ahead; we look forward to walking this road with them,” said BWA Port Elizabeth Chair Heather Dutton.
The finalists in the six categories now enter an independent and audited judging process before the winners are announced at a gala dinner on Thursday, June 21. The independent panel of judges, made up of a broad cross-section of Nelson Mandela Bay leaders in business, government and civil society, will interview and select a winner in each of the six categories.
The engaging RBAA participation process, which will take place over the next month, not only recognises but also enriches the careers of finalists and winners
