WIPP members Mary Schnack, President of Communication Bridges and an international communications speaker, and Martha Mertz, author of “Becoming ATHENA: Eight Principles of Enlightened Leadership” and founder of ATHENA International, were keynote speakers at the First Annual International Women’s Business Conference in Nairobi, Kenya, from May 20-22. Sponsored by the Kenya Association of Women Business Owners (KAWBO), Mertz spoke on the ATHENA model of enlightened leadership, and Schnack spoke on “A Brand Called You” as well as participating on a panel on “Business Beyond Borders.

Media coverage of the conference was extensive and both Schnack and Mertz were featured in the Nairobi press. Kenya’s Minister of Trade attended and gave the opening address. Eva Muraya, Chair of KAWBO, boldly stated a “shopping list” for the minister of what women entrepreneurs need to grow their businesses. Muraya also heads up the Women’s Business Forum in Kenya, which is a women’s advocacy group, originally started with a grant from the Gates Foundation and Vital Voices.
