We are a membership organisation recognised (‘accredited’) by 53 Governments working to encourage, enable and embed women in leadership and women’s economic empowerment through trade, talent and training (the ‘3 Ts’). We are a network of networks bringing together around 50,000 women across 5 continents committed to women’s economic empowerment through our Regional Partners and National Leadership Groups.
The 3rd Commonwealth Businesswomen Awards aim to celebrate the achievement of women in business across the Commonwealth – and challenge the lack of genuine geographic diversity and inclusiveness in too many International Women Achievement Awards with one powerful message: the Commonwealth’s billion-plus women need to be celebrated and women’s economic empowerment has to be prioritised, pushed and praised.
The 3rd Commonwealth Businesswomen Awards
The Commonwealth Businesswomen Awards were announced at the Commonwealth Women’s Affairs Ministers and Senior Officials meeting in New York on 11th March 2018 by Angelique Pouponneau, the Vice Chairperson of Commonwealth Youth Council, member of CBW Executive Management Team and a member of the Seychelles Mission to the UN in New York.
“It is more vital than ever to focus on full participation by women in all aspects of economic activity, and the Commonwealth Businesswomen’s Network makes an important contribution towards achieving this.”
