OUR CHAPTERS

80% of queer womxn in our community reported that at least 7 out of 10 attendees at LGBT-centric business events they have encountered are male identifying. Our goal is to build a supportive ecosystem of queer womxn entrepreneurs, investors and working professionals to help each other thrive. 


Our chapters offer experiences where queer womxn in business and allies connect and network in their local regions.

CAPE TOWN

Queer Womxn Access

In late 2019, I launched the QWB+A Cape Town Chapter with the vision to increase access for the queer community to connect and share conversations around meaningful and relevant topics. At our first event, we created a safe space for queer entrepreneurs to share their struggles and celebrations from how they overcome moments of sexism in the beauty industry to what it means to be a queer ‘ally’ in business in Cape Town.

JOHANNESBURG

A Queer Womxn Revoltuion!

In 2019, we hosted three chapter events around the themes, "Connecting Personal & Business brands: Powering Your Social Capital”, "Thriving through mental health challenges " and "Curbing Unemployment one Start-Up at a time”. The QWB+A 2019 Chapters marked the beginning of a queer-womxn-led and driven revolution In South Africa, and I am grateful to have been part of it! 


Mankwe Motimele, Johannesburg Chapter Leader

DURBAN

Queer Womxn Empowerment

In 2019, QWB+A fostered connections and friendships amongst the diverse queer Durban communities with the common cause of queer female empowerment. With chapter meeting topics ranging from ‘Thriving through mental health challenges’ to ‘Queer Women in Leadership’, our attendees are always highly engaged.
