Hazel Chawapiwa shortlisted as “Role Model of The Year” at the Women4Africa Awards

The 2Inspire Network is proud to announce that Hazel Chawapiwa has been shortlisted for a Women4Africa Award in the “Role Model of The Year” Category. The 2Inspire Network was launched in 2012 with its inaugural Ladies Day at The Crowne Plaza Docklands. This year will see the return of the 2Inspire Ladies Day on March 9th with the launch of the 2Inspire Academy; a personal development and life-skills programme for young people aged 16-21.

Hazel Chawapiwa was born in the UK in the mid-70s but originates from Zimbabwe. She is a passionate business woman who started her first business in 1999 whilst studying at University. Hazel often says the financial strains of being a young single mother and a student was the motivation for her to start her own business. A redundancy and the need to raise a deposit to get on the property ladder led to her becoming involved in a number of business ventures one of them being an events company which she started with an old time friend. It was a successful venture and it was during this period that she realised that working full-time was suppressing her entrepreneurial spirit.

The 2inspire network was launched in May of 2012, “Empowering individuals and helping them to realise their potential is something that I am passionate about. I believe that women should work together and support each other on their journeys, this belief is the foundation of the network, an organisation that provides forums and platforms that help to empower, promote and inspire women” says Founder Hazel Chawapiwa.

Women4africa is a UK registered organisation focused on  celebrating  and empowering  Africa and its women by supporting and  celebrating their role in their communities via Conferences, supporting education and an awards ceremony honouring women identified and nominated by the public. The Women4Africa Awards will take place on May 18th at the Great Hall in Kensington.
