Welcome to our WIMA Platform. WIMA stands for straight in Swahili. WIMA symbolises a straight forward life for women. WIMA represents women who stand tall, women who have earned their power and leadership status with no shortcuts. WIMA represents women with vision. We want to inspire and show the girl child to stand tall and work hard as there are no short cuts to achieving success.
WIMA is to improve gender balance and diversity on boards and in leadership roles in line with the international benchmark for sustainable business practices, and Goals 5 & 10 of the United Nations Sustainable Developmental Goals (SDG 2030).
We aim to become a thriving network supporting fellow women on their board, leadership journey and celebrating their successes.
In an era of skill shortages, women represent a formidable talent pool that companies aren’t making enough of." Deborah France-Massin, Director ILO Bureau for Employers' Activities.
