WomanRising is pleased to announce its annual initiative aimed at identifying and honouring outstanding and audacious Ghanaian women entrepreneurs in all sectors of the economy dubbed the “Woman Entrepreneur of the Year Awards (WEYA 2016)”.
WEYA 2016 is designed to discover and celebrate the most outstanding women entrepreneurs in over 30 vital sectors of the economy. With a vision to encourage more women to embrace entrepreneurship and to venture into sectors that have been dominated primarily by their male counterparts, WEYA 2016 will showcase such audacious women that have ventured and are succeeding in such sectors.
The WEYA 2016 awards includes 34 regular categories and seven special categories.
Nominations are now open for a month from the 16th of May to the 10th of June, 2016. This will be followed by a trimming down by a team of Judges and a 50 member Faculty who will be voting for the shortlisted women entrepreneurs.
