WOLA honours women leaders

The Women’s Leadership Awards exemplify the best in leadership and they are an initiative of the Women’s Institute of Leadership, WILA in partnership with the Women’s Heritage Society World Organisation, WHSWO. The WOLA seeks to epitomise the core values of a successful female leader – strength, innovation, ingenuity, knowledge and foresight – values that are imperative to carving out powerful businesses and organisations in the global economy. Spread across various categories and industry domains.

WOLA distinguishes and honours female leaders who have contributed and shaped the Zimbabwean economy, and are visionaries behind today’s outstanding businesses and organisations.

They salute remarkable female business leaders and organisations in Zimbabwe for their continued commitment to female leadership excellence, developing best practices and innovative strategies.

WOLA is proud to continue the tradition established by the awards that define and celebrate vision, uphold the spirit of achievement and recognise women as leaders of excellence in Zimbabwe.
