Durban’s women business owners were introduced to WEConnect International in South Africa for the first time on 16 August 2017. EY Durban hosted a connect session for local women business owners in the EY offices in Umhlanga, Kwa-Zulu Natal. The event was part of a roadshow which included Cape Town on the 14th August and a match-making session for certified women business owners in Johannesburg on the 15th August.
Both events were hosted by EY South Africa in collaboration with WEConnect International in South Africa to renew connections with women business owners and introduce them to the exciting world of doing business with corporates. The WEConnect International in South Africa team was joined by the Chairperson of the Advisory Council, Jacoba Schutte, EY Products and Services Procurement Lead, Africa; Anusha Govender, Operations Manager Coastal, representing Sodexo Southern Africa (Pty) Ltd, also a global member of WEConnect International; and Chantal Boulle from the US Consulate in Durban.
