SECTOR FOREWORD Manufacturing and Engineering With growing literacy levels, Africa has seen a rise in women’s contribution to its national economies. Women have become leading industry players in their different sectors including manufacturing and engineering that was, for long, a preserve of men. African women have become incredibly business savvy, determined and resilient. Many have created a name for themselves in the business world. While some have succeeded by moving up the corporate ladder, others have made it through entrepreneurship. The latter is critical, today, because it is widely accepted that the only way that our economies can grow and create employment is to ‘think out of the box’ and tread where no one else has trodden before. It is kudos to the women honoured in this sector. For defying stereotypes and showing the world that you can come into your own, CEO Global pays tribute to you.
