WEConnect International in South Africa Annual Conference Agenda & Gallery


Thank you for attending the WEConnect International in South Africa Conference 

On behalf of WEConnect International in South Africa, our host and Platinum sponsor EY, 2016 programme sponsor ExxonMobil, and our other conference sponsors, Accenture, Intel and Merck, we would like to THANK YOU for attending the WEConnect International in South Africa Conference on 8 April 2016. 

From your feedback on the day and continued messages that we have received,  we know  that you found the conference informative and worthwhile.  

The primary goal of this conference was to celebrate and encourage women in business through connections with global corporates, and through panel discussions, presentations and networking. 

All our speakers were amazing and shared a lot of content throughout the day, and all attendees had unique opportunities to network and connect with the corporates  from EY, ExxonMobil, Accenture, Intel, Merck, Cummins, Absa/Barclays, Protea/Marriott and P&G.

We were lucky to have so many global corporate supplier diversity leads from the USA,  notably Theresa Harrison, EY; Michael K. Robinson, IBM; and Tara Spann, MSD. We believe that our diverse and vibrant group of panelists and speakers gave practical as well as in-depth insight and advice on business. Elizabeth A. Vazquez, the CEO and Co-founder of WEConnect International also gave us updates on WEConnect International Global and confirmed her support to growing WEConnect International in South Africa.

On the 12th of February 2016, WEConnect International in South Africa in partnership with corporate member Accenture had a connect session hosted by Accenture at their office in Cape Town. Enterprise and Supplier Development lead for Accenture Zandile Njamela led the session with 22 eager women business owners from Cape Town.

Zandile emphasized the importance of working together as women business owners and explained that WEConnect International is not just about connecting women with Corporate Members, but it’s also about connecting women business owners and creating an environment where women buy from one another. She also emphasized that women with small businesses should form collaborations and approach the bigger corporate members for contracts. In closing her address Zandile stressed the importance of certification, especially since Accenture is keen on working with women-owned businesses, namely certified women’s business enterprises.
