The world is filled with some incredible women that silently slave away to make our communities better, but sometimes we just want to shout it from the rooftops. Thankfully, we have the opportunity to do just that with Valcare’s women empowerment initiative. With National Women’s Month fast approaching, it’s the perfect time to nominate an inspirational woman that will be named the Proteas of the Valley for 2021.
Now in its ninth year, this initiative provides a platform to empower, honour and celebrate the incredible women that make a difference in the Cape Winelands. Nominations are open to the public, and available online and will close on Friday, July 2, so make sure to throw your favourite lady’s name into the ring!
Only remarkable women that make a positive impact in the lives of others and who live or work within the Cape Winelands region (Paarl to Franschhoek, Wellington to Stellenbosch) can be considered for a nomination, as per Good Things Guy.
Once nominations have closed, an independent selection committee will choose 15 inspirational women, which will then be announced in July 2021. These women will get the spotlight they deserve, as they will be celebrated throughout Women’s month in August 2021. If that’s not the perfect way to celebrate this month, we don’t know what is.
