Women in Business Conference


The Women in Business Society hosts an annual Women in Business Conference with the objective of  raising funds for a future female GSB student.

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 conference boasts a full day programme which includes a fantastic networking event and vendor exhibition and offers both a major networking opportunity and a unique perspective on rising above challenging circumstances.  Most importantly, say organisers of the school’s WIB Committee, the annual conferences will also help raise funds for a bursary for a deserving female business student.

“In line with this goal, funds raised through the conference go towards supporting deserving, but financially disadvantaged, women to enrol in the GSB’s Academic Programmes, namely the MBA and PGDip,” says Heloise Janse van Rensburg, WIB committee member. 

The conference offers an array of experiences and tools to inspire female leaders to be fully involved in making a positive difference in business and our communities. It offers an enriching platform to motivate, inspire and connect women of all industries and experience. 

The WIB Conference has run annually since 1999 during Women’s Month. More information about the Conference is available on the GSB’s Facebook page,  or email wibconference@gsb.uct.ac.za.

Companies can negotiate sponsorship in exchange for brand exposure, and are invited to donate raffle prizes, silent auction prizes, or goodie-bag items.
