A thought-provoking debate to

woman businessEvery year on 9 August we celebrate Women’s Day in South Africa, a public holiday that pays homage to the women of our nation – the mothers, the wives, the sisters and the daughters who fought tirelessly against the tyranny of the Apartheid government.

Research has shown that for women to move into positions of leadership, mentorship and sponsorship are vital. For this reason the SA Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a panel discussion with high profile speakers on Women’s Day.

The topic for the panel discussion will be: addressing the gender balance agenda and its impact on the global economy.

The issue of gender balancing is an issue close to the hearts and minds of all boards wanting to get the competitive edge in competitive environments and is not only a ‘woman only’ event or issue.

The four panellists are:
Frances Mensah Williams. Frances is the CEO of Interims for Development as well as the publisher and editor of re-connect Africa.
Pamela Nomvete. Pamela is a South African actress, writer, director and producer.
Jenny Knott. Jenny is the CEO of Standard Bank PLC and CIB International.
Lisa MacLeod. Lisa is the Head of Operations for FT.Com and associate editor of the Financial Times.
The event will be hosted by Debbie Thomas, the Senior Advisory Partner for Deloitte LLP as well as the Lead Partner of Deloitte’s Africa Services Group.

You are invited to join what promises to be an empowering and thought-provoking event.

The cost of this event is £10 for Chamber of Commerce members and £20 for guests (men welcome too!)

Drinks and canapes will be served.
