As women, it’s in our nature to win and we make no apologies about it.
For the longest time we struggled to acquire a seat on the table but after a while, we bought our own timber, made a whole table and brought fancy chairs.
Women are no longer asking for permission to be included, they’re taking opportunities and it’s such a breath of fresh air to witness.
In Kenya, the situation is no different, with the internet we can see examples of women who inspire us to be fierce in the pursuit of our goals. Lately, some Kenyan women have been recognized internationally and they keep bagging deals right, left and centre.
Here are 5 Kenyan women making major moves:
