Welcome to Women in Oil and Energy South Africa
Black women in South Africa have either been at the lowest end of any form of business opportunity, or totally excluded. It therefore is imperative for women to focus cohesively on addressing their unique position in order to address these facts. WOESA’s first priority is to facilitate women’s participation in business opportunities in the oil, gas and energy sector in South Africa.
Given the historical reality of South Africa, WOESA’s focus is specifically on Historically Disadvantaged Individuals and groups, whilst not excluding white women.

The WOESA Group consists of a number of companies, the two main companies being WOESA NPO and WOESA Investment Holdings. While WOESA NPO is a not-for-profit organisation started to give women more presence in the oil and energy sector, WOESA Investments and WOESA Investment Holdings were started as a commercial vehicle in order to not only allow WOESA NPO to sustain itself but also to provide more investment and business opportunities to empower women.
