By on July 24, 2013

Some of South Africa’s top women in government and business will find themselves on the red carpet celebrating this year’s 10th Annual Top Women Awards on 2nd August 2013 at the Sandton Convention Centre.

As the Top Women Awards celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, an esteemed panel of judges were convened to adjudicate what has become the premier awards for recognising and celebrating top gender empowerment credentials of leading businesses and organisations within South Africa.

Linda Dlova, the Executive Manager of Communications at the National Youth Development Agency, and a judge at this year’s awards, noted:

“I was pleasantly surprised by the calibre of entries for the 2013 Top Women Awards. Surprised in the sense that these women have such passion and dedication for their greater communities. They go above their own personal needs to empower children, youth and other women. This inspires me. If a handful of women can achieve so much, just imagine what we can achieve together.”

Some of the other judges included: Dolly Mokgatle, co-founder and Executive Director of Peotona Group Holdings, Ayanda Sisulu-Dunstan, co-head of Debt Capital Markets at Rand Merchant Bank, and Joe Samuels, CEO of the South African Qualifications Authority.
