IN a bid to support and recognise local women in the business industry, Digicel Fiji announced a $10,000 cash sponsorship yesterday for the Women in Business (WIB) 2013 business awards.

The awards night in March would be held in conjunction with World Women's Day celebrations. Digicel Fiji's head of marketing Sheryl Singh said they were delighted to support the initiative of Women in Business to empower, support, develop and promote its members professionally and personally.

"We are proud of our association with Women in Business and look forward to this partnership in years to come," Ms Singh said.

WIB president Doctor Nur Bano Ali expressed appreciation saying the contribution was in recognition of the need to support business and executive women in the country.

"Corporate sponsorship such as these confirms the need to promote women in commerce and business," Dr Ali said.

Core responsibilities of WIB include providing encouragement and support for existing and new businesswomen in Fiji for the development and sustainable growth of the business industry.

Meanwhile, Dr Ali said WIB was still accepting nominations for the awards until February 11.

She encouraged women to come forward and be recognised for their hard work.
