Top Women Awards - honorary special tribute in the multinationals category
Coca-Cola Southern Africa (CCSA) recently received an honorary award for the company’s longstanding work on women empowerment at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg. It was the 10th anniversary of the Top Women Award, organized by Topco Media, an established South African business-to-business publication. In celebration of the Awards’ 10th anniversary, specific companies who have gone over and above normal practice in gender equality were identified and commemorated at the ceremony.
CCSA was awarded an honorary special tribute in the multinationals category, alongside Total, Unilever, Sasol and Volkswagen. The event included dignitaries such as the Executive Mayor of City of Johannesburg, Parks Tau and the Designate Executive Director of the United Nation Entity for Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women (UN Women), Madam Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka. CCSA’s special tribute from Top Women Awards exemplifies that creating a climate of success for women is not just a simple act of philanthropy, it is smart business.
