On 01 August 2013, Top Women in Business and Government publication’s project manager, Lee-Ann Arendse handed over the Top Gender Empowered Company certificate to Travonica Naidu, Senior Manager of Diversity and Inclusiviness at Ernst & Young.
Welcome to Top Women
The annual publication is the result of a process where our research department selects over 1500 gender-empowered companies to list and profile. The companies that meet our entry criteria include local and national government departments, educational institutions and State-owned enterprises.
Top Women, as brand and a publication, creates a media platform to showcase companies that demonstrate good governance. Our focus is companies that have created policies to entrench gender equality into their company strategy.
Gender empowerment is at the cutting edge of the business agenda globally and companies want to do business with other organisations who can showcase and demonstrate this is a priority in their organisation.
Our focus is to allow investors to find and reach these companies. Research shows that female-run and owned organisations have greater performance levels. Top Women is here to find them, and allow investors.
