THE ASSOCIATION OF WOMEN IN BUSINESS was founded on July 10th, 1991 by a group of women, who together with the Association's mandate laid the foundation for promoting an environment for women to grow and develop in their business and profession. MAWB is a constituted, non-profit making, non-political organisation; and is completely autonomous.
The Malta Association of Women in Business was accepted as a full member of Les Femmes Chefs d'Entreprises Mondiales at the International Annual General Meeting held in Madrid, 1992. Since then, MAWB has participated at the FCEM World Congresses & International Annual General Meetings.
