We believe in social impact made by women
Influential, skilled and connected women with bold solutions to social and environmental issues can create sustainable opportunities to make the world a better place. They are also more likely to be listened to and valued as civic, political and economic contributors.
... and a strong support ecosystem
We believe that a stronger ecosystem of advisors, supporters and finance providers, that operates with a conscious gender-lens, can contribute to grow women in social enterprises and their work.
What We Do
With a team of highly qualified consultants, Ogunte CIC delivers a suite of customised products and services tailored to the challenges and business needs of women in social enterprises, the professionals working in their eco-system, and organisations who aspire to have a positive impact on women and girls.
