The Africa Women Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF) honoured our CEO and Founder Kristine Pearson with the 2019 AWIEF Lifetime Achievement Award, in recognition of her body of work spanning 20 years.
AWIEF annually recognise, honour and celebrate Women Entrepreneurs and Business Owners across Africa. According to the AWIEF, “The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to an established woman entrepreneur for prolonged and consistent achievements in business. The individual is a role model who has displayed exceptional and outstanding business leadership over time.”
Pearson said she was honoured and grateful for this award from the AWIEF. “It caught me completely by surprise. This is a platform to remind women to help support and mentor younger women in their fields at every opportunity. Africa’s future lies with her women and this is something I have seen in my work“.
