The WIBA actively promotes women’s empowerment and advancement and not just in business. In DLR Chamber, this is done through a number of key measures and actions.
WIBA encourages women to become a part of the Chamber in order to give them a platform for them and their business. WIBA gives women, and men, a chance to network and promote themselves to their peers, prospects and customers.

WIBA Interview with Christina Noble
A moving an unique interview with Christina Noble filmed for the “Confidence Call” lunch on International Women’s Day 2018.
Christina Noble is the founder and driving force behind the Christina Noble Foundation.
Affectionately known as ‘Mama Tina’, Christina has become one of the most inspirational Irish female crusaders of our time.
Her passion for children’s rights was catalyzed by her tumultuous upbringing and she overcame adversity to care and advocate for disadvantaged children in the slums of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
To date, the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation has helped an estimated 140,000 children.
On February 25, she received an OBE from Prince Charles in Buckingham Palace, an honour she hopes will gain further credibility for her foundation.
Women In Business Alliance (WIBA) was established in 2011 by past President Liz Ferris. It was a natural
Progressive from our women’s workshops which highlighted issues pertaining to women and how we could address them.
On International Women’s Day which falls on 8th March we hold a lunch for our members and friends.
We pick a theme each year and our women guest speakers come from all walks of like to impart
Wisdom and humour to our attendees at our lively lunches.
