Own your success this Woman’s Month

As an enabler of success, we encourage women to own their achievements despite the obstacles that they may encounter.

#SheOwnsHerSuccess is a call for every woman to proudly and boldly be unapologetic about their achievements. It’s about taking sustainable action and shattering barriers on their journey to success.

It’s a movement that encourages women to own their success and keep it in motion.

We’re here to build the momentum of every woman’s journey to success

However, there are a number of socio-economic and psychological challenges that limit women’s progress on their journey to success. We aim to leverage our expertise in order to pave a way that will accelerate women towards the financial success that they envision for themselves.

We also recognise that beyond encouraging women to make no apologies for their success, they need to accelerate their efforts towards active participation. It is the sharing of knowledge and experiences with each other that will deliberately shift the current position of women, and increase the number of impactful roles they occupy in society.

Womentum (noun)

Women who don’t apologise for their success; keep their
success in motion.

This is the 2nd year that we’ve purposefully changed our name to honour every woman – and her limitless potential. Womentum is the action behind our intention - which is to be here for every woman’s journey to success.
