The Christian Women in Business (CWB) Network launched on 29 April 2017 at the Gateway Hotel in Umhlanga, Durban. With Nedbank as a partner it was attended by business, professional and academic women from different backgrounds to create a business network for women of faith. The initiative created a local network for sharing business knowledge, inspiration, support and encouragement towards growing and flourishing businesses and careers with Christian values.
'I am excited by this initiative by Bontlebame NPO which I initially became involved with a few years ago through their Girls of Hope Programme which empowers young girls from difficult background - ushering them into responsible young women. I'm involved in this Christian Women in Business Network initiative because of its Christian background, for me balancing spirituality, with real life and work always results in a fulfilling balanced life and this is what CWB Network promises to bring to business and professional women,' said singer songwriter Lira who was a speaker at the launch.
