Every year in October AWiB presents inspiring stories and incredible accomplishments of deserving women of our community. AWiB works tirelessly on WOE recognition to cultivate a culture of appreciation and generate many role models for the coming generation.
In 2014, yet another occasion to excavate these women from their trenches, AWiB profiled seven phenomenon women with compelling stories to tell and be told. In the presence of over 500 corporate executives, influential community leaders, businessmen and women, the stories and contributions of these seven women were celebrated through short documentaries, printed booklets with stories of all nominees, and exchanges with the women themselves at a gala dinner fit for a Queen. And Tehras Mezgebe, a champion for preventing Bush Birthing took the title for AWiB WOE 2014.
AWiB is now calling upon members of the public, friends and fans to nominate women from different sectors you believe have done work that needs to be celebrated; stories you believe need to be heard; and female role models you believe need to be made visible.
