Balance of Power, in partnership with the Vanuatu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), hosted an event recently in Port Vila to hand over portraits of women in the private sector whose stories were featured in the book ‘Nation Builders – Celebrating Women in the Private Sector.

Out of the 40 women featured in the book, only 32 from Efate collected their portraits during the handover event. Portraits of women from other islands will be shipped to their respective homes.

The book ‘Nation Builders: Celebrating Women in Private Sector’ was launched in October last year. A photo exhibition at the time displayed pictures and stories of 40 women from the private sector, showcasing their contributions to the country’s development.

The recent handing over of the portraits serves as a gesture of appreciation for their contributions. These women have played significant roles in demonstrating leadership and showcasing how women contribute to the development of the private sector.
