C & N Petroleum Equipment (PTY) Ltd in Johannesburg
C & N Petroleum Equipment went full force this year in promoting woman in the workplace. Yvonne Van Schalkwyk founder and CEO of C and N Petroleum Equipment was nominated in various categories in TOPCO Woman of the Year Awards 2011 namely; Top Gender Empowered Company in Resources, Top Woman Executive, Mentor of the Year.
C & N Petroleum Equipment was awarded with a highly commended certificate in the Top Gender Empowered Company and Yvonne Van Schalkwyk received a highly commended certificate for Mentor of the year. We were competing against giant companies such as Engen, Anglo American and Channel Africa only to name a few. To receive these acknowledgements and certificates is a phenomenal achievement and requires years of dedication in empowering woman.
