An International organisation, Women Appreciating Women yesterday honoured women across the globe who have and are leading and championing empowerment, organisational structures, political influence and philanthropy. Among the honoured are six Zimbabwean women for their contribution to the Zimbabwean, regional, continental and global community.
The women were conferred with the WAW Honorary Awards at a glitz event in London last night, a dinner event organised by Dr. Pauline Long, the organisation founder and patron. Dr. Long is credited for founding and championing the Black Entertainment, Film, Fashion, Television, Arts & Sports Awards which have seen thousands of elite personalities worldwide celebrated.
Former Vice President of Zimbabwe Dr. Joice TR Mujuru was the first Zimbabwean recipient of the WAW Honorary Awards last year where she was the Guest of Honour at the WAW International Women’s Day 2017
The honoured Zimbabwean women are Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa who have boldly harnessed the media sector, Dr Charity Jinya who is the Managing Director of MBCA Bank, Mrs Chipo Mutasa the CEO of TelOne Zimbabwe, Dr Jesimen Chipika the Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, Honourable Dr. Sithembiso G.G. Nyoni the Minister of Women & Youth Affair and Mrs Sherree Shereni a Women and Faith Empowerment philanthropist whose work and influence is beyond the Zimbabwean community.
Speaking at the award ceremony, Dr. Pauline profoundingly acknowledged the contribution of Zimbabwean women in many spheres of life yet the humility and resilience the women have exerted even in the most difficult and harsh economic environment;
“the next group of women we honour tonight are Zimbabwean women. While tonight I mention six gallant icons, I am humbled by Zimbabwean women who I have come across endlessly in all spheres I have been involved, working and leading dedicatedly and excellently. What amazes me about these Zimbabwean women is their humility and resilience, giving out commendable results in their fields and sectors without seeking acknowledgement or calling to be congratulated”, said Dr. Long.
