ABN Publishing has launched the highly anticipated Forbes Woman Africa, a new monthly magazine in Johannesburg, South Africa.
“Forbes Woman Africa follows the success of Forbes Africa,” said Rakesh Wahi, founder and vice chairman of the ABN Group during the launch, on 1 October 2013.
This latest Pan-African publication will navigate the world of business for women, with features on the latest trends in the corporate sector and how its architecture speaks to women.
“There are so many stories of success on the African continent that we will never be able to do justice to all the women making a difference in the corporate world, which is the principal reason why I took the decision to have a separate magazine for women. We are looking forward to making this the most sought after business magazine for women on the continent,” said Wahi.
The magazine will profile the trailblazers, game changers and pioneers among the women involved in business, the economy of Africa and the world. In line with this, the magazine will also feature the wealthy, powerful and influential women in business whose impact is felt long after they have come and gone.
“We are excited about this new magazine which will provide a platform for amazing women in Africa doing extraordinary work, be it in the economy, business, politics, art and culture. Forbes Woman Africa is a niche product sorely needed in the African market,” said Karima Brown, editor of Forbes Woman Africa.
