MTN Uganda announces the launch of the 2017 edition of MTN Women in Business Awards . It is a series of events through which MTN recognizes and celebrates the most outstanding female business leaders.
MTN Uganda’s Senior Manager of Enterprise, Ms. Hazel Twesigye, said since its inception in 1998 it created a stable platform for business to prosper. It also created a diversified employee and partner base in Uganda. This represented many women previously excluded from the real economy. However, MTN’s services are changing the way businesses run and among the key beneficiaries are women who are breaking all barriers and ceasing the opportunity to rise and shine in business and the corporate world.
MTN has been the head of supporting many businesses in Uganda. It is through its extensive Enterprise business as well as the MTN Business training programs for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). This program has over the last three years extended to Women in Business (WIB). This is to accelerate the role of women in driving enterprise development and job creation.
