Antigua and Barbuda will host the first-ever Caribbean Women Inventors & Innovators Network Conference and Awards Ceremony this year.
The event will be put on by the UK-based Global Women Inventors & Innovators.
It will be launched between May 18 and 19, and will bring female leaders from around the world together with their Caribbean counterparts.
The women – pioneers, leaders, entrepreneurs and influencers in their career fields and sectors will meet for discussions and networking opportunities, a release says.
“CaribbWIIN highlight the achievements of outstanding women, and promises to be an unveiling of many unsung women with qualities that demonstrate sheer tenacity, dedication, and determination,” the release adds.
This Caribbean event follows GlobalWIIN’s success in placing the spotlight on the creativity of hundreds of women in Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and North America.
Dr Bola Olabisi, CEO of the Global Women Inventors & Innovators Network, says it is about time that the world takes notice of the captivating, unique and innovative remedies, concepts, products and processes that women from the Caribbean develop for social and economic growth, regionally and globally.
The women who will take part in the event are those with new and practical solutions covering various sectors, to include Agri-business, Healthcare, Energy, Technology, Fashion, and the Arts.
