KZN Young Women in Business

KZNYWIB is a platform designed to encourage young women, from Grade 8 (approx. age 14) to Grade 12 (age 18), to join KZNWIB, to learn from our membership of experienced businesswomen what it takes to succeed as a businesswoman. The young women will be able to attend formal meetings during their school holidays and be part of our networking on a formal level. On top of this, we aim to arrange separate workshops designed around the specific needs of these young women, to help them learn and grow and to give them skills they would not otherwise be exposed to. These workshops will take place outside of the meeting space, and will be scheduled at times that are more convenient to the young ladies. We are very excited about this platform, as it is the first of its kind in KZN. We know it will strengthen the legacy of our organisation, and empower the young women who will certainly follow after us.
