Women in Business AssociationOn February 12, 2015, the Southern Africa Trade Hub met with the Women in Business Association (WIBA) to discuss WIBA’s capacity building needs and opportunities for the Trade Hub to provide support.

It was agreed that the Trade Hub will conduct a train-the-trainer workshop on gender integration as well as a persuasive communications and negotiation training for WIBA members in May 2015.

Established in 1971, WIBA aims to promote 1) increased participation of women in the economy, including non-traditional sectors, 2) an enabling environment that encourages women to become business-owners and promotes the sustainability of women-owned enterprises, and 3) increased input by women in Botswana’s economic decision-making and business leadership. To date, WIBA has over 200 members across Botswana with businesses in a wide variety of sectors.
