WIMBIZ was formed in 2002 to improve the success rate of female entrepreneurs and increase the proportion of women in senior positions in corporate organizations in Nigeria. It has set out to foster improved networking amongst businesswomen and corporate professionals to help address issues specific to women in all areas of economic endeavour. Through support and encouragement, WIMBIZ hopes to see more women in positions of leadership in Nigeria.
Accenture has supported WIMBIZ for the past 10 years. Partnering with the initiative demonstrates our commitment to helping women overcome the economic challenges they face and underpins Accenture's respect for the contribution of women to society and the world.
