ESTABLISHED online magazine, Divas Inc, held their inaugural Zim Women Roar award ceremony at Meikles on Wednesday night.
Fourteen women from all walks of life were recognised and walked away with glass accolades at the glamorous event.
Talking on the side lines of the ceremony, the magazine’s Founder and Editor, Josephine Kanengoni, said she was surprised with the turnout and she was already envisioning a bigger and better second edition.
“Zim Women Roar came about when we realised there are many women with amazing stories who are making in so many different ways across the country.
“There are not enough platforms where we are sharing those stories so we wanted to create that platform and celebrate them.
“We wanted to boldly say we are not afraid or shy of our achievements and we chose the lioness as it is exemplary, a leader, not afraid to claim her space and that’s what Zimbabwean women are like,” Kanengoni said.
The event is said to have been made possible by Divas Inc and Huckleberry with the help of Edgars, MBCA and Power FM.
Kanengoni added that the chosen 14 are the beginning of a journey and they represent a million of women who have been making an impact in their respective industries.
