Being in the talent space as a recruitment agency (CVPeople Tanzania) for more than 8 years, we saw a huge gap in Senior Level Women applying for leadership roles and even low placement rates occupied by women . This led to the birth of the initiative known as WIMA to promote and increase visibility for Senior-Level Women in Management. The simple idea came to feature 50 Senior Women in Management to our Social Media Pages "Career Women Wednesday and honor them for their successes" This idea created a lot of buzz and traction by inspiring emerging leaders showing them it's possible for them to reach the career leader especially for female professionals.
WIMA aims 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).
Even in today’s modern workplace, women face many barriers, including lower pay for equivalent positions, unconscious bias, and low number of women in senior positions.
Identify education and training workshops that are designed by women for women and help them address gender disparity issues in the work environments.
To build a wide database of highly qualified female professionals across multiple sectors to serve as board members and C-Level executives in private sector.
Women in Management will provide mentorship and encourage and develop emerging Talented female professionals to be inspired in their careers and being role models to them.
Meet our board of directors. With backgrounds from different financial institutions, non-profit organizations and international organizations. They are the people responsible for driving WIMA’s growth and ensuring that we continue to exceed the expectations of our clients.
