Esmé Davies, co-founder of WIFN Cape Town, was invited by the City of Cape Town to participate on a panel: Women In Leadership in August last year.
The 400 delegates represented leadership from various sectors in government and business in Cape Town.
The main speaker was the Chairperson of Businesswomen’s Association, the largest businesswomen’s organisation in South Africa, Lerato Mgidlana, who spoke on Identifying, acknowledging and rewarding excellence.
“The panel comprised a number of amazing women,” says Esmé : Madelein Mkunu, CEO, Leading Women of Africa; Irene Ochem, CEO (AWIEF), African Women Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum; Moira Krige, Chairperson, (South African Network for Women in Transport) SANWIT, Western Cape; Anine Pheiffer, General Manager, Chevron; and Baxolile Zwane, Cube Energy Solutions and former vice president of PetroSA.
“It was a privilege to have been invited to represent Women In Finance Network, since the aim of the organisers was to establish such a network for the whole of the City of Cape Town,” Esmé adds
