ANWBN Slogan

Women National Business Agenda

The Women Business Agenda is our vital tool created for the business community to encourage Investment and stimulate business activity and economic growth for women. With the support of CIPE, we developed the first Women National Business Agenda in 2015 as a guide to addressing the major challenges business and professional women face, that constituted huge impediments to their growth and sustainability. The WNBA also offered concrete recommendations and reforms to remove these barriers and improve the business climate for women.


Women's Anthem

1. All Across the Nation
All Around the World
Women are longing to be free
No longer in the Shadows
Forced to stay behind
But side by side in true Equality




So sing a song for Women everywhere
Let it ring around the world and never, never cease,
So sing a song for Women everywhere, Equality,
Development and Peace

2. Women can’t be silent
When around the world
People hurt and hungry children cry
We’ll sing out now for Justice and Development
And hold the Rights of all the People High




3. Women now are working to build a better world
Where the love of Peace can rest on every shore
Where men lay down their weapons and learn to love and share
And People work to bring an end to War


Refrain (2) to end
