Who we are
Timeless Celebration, A Decade & Beyond
ZAA is an international brand that is committed to recognise, celebrate and honour phenomenal Zimbabweans making a difference around the world.
Founded in 2010 by businessman Conrad Mwanza, the flagship ZAA UK Edition took place in London and set the tone for an expansion that has seen ZAA present in 6 countries.
The awards were created with a vision to celebrate high achievement within diaspora communities and to create a platform for exponential community growth and engagement with the home front.
To date ZAA hosts annual award galas in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa and Botswana, with the brand’s work and impact reaching beyond celebrations but empowering others and creating synergies across the globe.
ZAA honours individuals and organisations across various categories including business, entrepreneurship, sport, arts & culture, youth, leadership and community work, among others.
The ZAA has grown a borderless community that is linked by innovative ideas, visionary leadership and a common desire to amplify Zimbabwean achievements in the world.
The ZAA Alumni is comprised of many leading personalities, organisations and up and rising Zimbabweans whose contributions have flown the flag high on a global scale.
ZAA continues to grow and increase its influence by creating a global network of Zimbabwean trailblazers with the rest of the world.
The ZAA is also involved in various charity and philanthropic initiatives through it’s goodwill arm, ZAA Foundation and it’s partners.
