Women in Business Conference


For the past 19 years, the MBA students at the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business have hosted an annual UCT GSB Women in Business Conference. This event brings together leaders and executives from the private, public and NGO sectors who have brought about meaningful change in our business landscape. The Women in Business society’s vision is to leave an inspirational legacy by creating a platform for women to connect, engage and excel in their professional and personal lives.

The UCT GSB WIB Conference has run annually since 1999 during Women’s Month. More information about the Conference is available on the Women in Business Facebook group or  blog: http://gsbblogs.uct.ac.za/womeninbusiness/

The theme of this year’s conference is “From Passion to Action: Changing the world we live in.” The purpose of the conference is to raise funds toward a scholarship for a deserving women to participate in UCT’s 2019 academic programmes, who would otherwise be financially excluded.
