creating massive ripple effects
Susan Aktemel – Impact Arts, UK
Donna Morton – First Power, Canada
Louise Van Rhyn – Symphonia for South Africa
and Andrea Krause – F.Y.S.E, China… win the 6th Oguntê Women’s Social Leadership Awards 2012
During a vibrant ceremony at the hub Westminster, supported by WeightWatchers International, the Awards have recognised women in the UK and abroad, influential leaders, connectors, campaigners and social entrepreneurs, who offer innovative and sustainable solutions to pressing social issues, and can evidence their social impact.
Servane Mouazan, CEO and Founder Ogunte, says: “These women-focused awards are not about fluffiness and cupcakes. The women who have won the Women’s Social Leadership Awards over the years are real achievers and are not coasting on the buzz. They are incredible role models, challengers, and impactful decision-makers. They are making waves in communities, at government level, raise awareness about facts that no-one wants to see, and also lead citizen movements against all odds. Our role is to show the world that these social entrepreneurs and activists do create massive ripple effects and that it’s worth looking at social and environmental change through a gender lens.”
Award Winners got a package of high value mentoring, executive coaching, access to media and speaking opportunities, all brokered by Oguntê Ltd, the Social Innovations Development company focused on women.
