Association of Women in Business (AWiB)

  • Ethiopia
  • Africa
Association of Women in Business (AWiB) is a volunteer-driven membership association established in April 2010 which seeks to unleash potential through supporting the personal and professional development of women in Ethiopia.

AWiB is committed to creating a platform for information-sharing, learning and supporting its members’ personal and professional development through monthly and annual events, workshops and online media. 

AWiB's members come from different walks of life, including members who are business owners, employees of private, governmental or civic society organisations as well as academic institutions.

They actively engage in enabling such development by:

  • Facilitating experience-sharing between upcoming and established women leaders through their networking platform
  • Encouraging transformative conversations and sharing of pertinent information for personal and professional development through their monthly programs and annual events
  • Convening prominent speakers and eminent personalities in an exchange of information and insights towards cultivating a culture of innovation, creativity and ideas exchange
  • Providing a dynamic networking platform with networking experiences custom tailored to each monthly event

AWIB offers women from diverse backgrounds and with diverse dreams to come together and explore each other’s paths—the challenges, the triumphs, the perseverance, the learning, and ultimately the growth each one experiences in the multitude of encounters that surround one’s personal and professional lives.

AWiB’s vision is to be a catalyst for Ethiopian female leaders to connect, emerge and grow together.
