Women in Leadership – August 2021
Session Date: 31 August 2021
In celebration of Women’s month, Duke Corporate Education (Duke CE) in Africa, in partnership with The International Women’s Forum South African (IWFSA), hosted a virtual event to explore some of the most pressing issues that women are facing at this time.
We’ve been watching with concern as women have been disproportionately impacted by current events in South Africa and globally, erasing years of progress towards inclusive leadership and gender equality. We believe this presents an opportunity to re-engage and accelerate positive outcomes for women.
Watch the recording of the event to hear from top leaders on working together to bring about positive change for women. Please feel free to share this event with your colleagues, so we can bring others along on this journey with us. Let’s lift as we rise!
