AWIEF is celebrating winning the Associations Advance Africa Award for Outstanding Achievement in Diversity and Inclusion.
The AWIEF Team is very proud and excited to announce that during the 2021 Africa Association Summit, AWIEF was selected as Winner of the Associations Advance Africa Award in the category of Outstanding Achievement in Diversity and Inclusion (particularly of Women and Youth).
The prestigious awards, established by African Society of Association Executives (AfSAE), recognize association programs and activities that are advancing society and improving the economy (at all levels). It is the highest recognition an association can receive for any impactful program they conduct together with their members. The award ceremony took place on 24 September at the 3rd AfSAE Africa Association Summit.
It is truly a wonderful achievement and a great honour to be presented with this award. It is an everlasting reward of AWIEF’s efforts, commitment, and passion towards providing socio-economic and entrepreneurial support for women and the youth and offering them the platform to sustainably grow their women-led businesses and create a positive lasting impact on the African communities.
According to our founder and CEO, Irene Ochem, “This is an African award for an African organisation, underscoring the centrality of Africa in the work of AWIEF. With this recognition, we will continue our work with even more passion, commitment, and determination.”
We sincerely thank all our partners and sponsors who have generously supported us along this interesting and exciting journey over these years.
