International Women’s Day is upon us and Zenande Leadership is hosting a celebratory event on the 7th March 2014 at Helderfontein Estate.  The event promises to be an interactive, fun filled networking event.  A host of leading SA women leaders will be sharing their own experiences and insights on leadership.  See for details.

The event takes a place where there is a renewed focus on the role women play in organization.  There is a global acceptance that more women are taking on leadership roles in many organisations and institutions whilst this is a welcome development a lot still needs to be done.  

The last session of the World Economic Forum (Davos 2014) had a particular focus on women.  This is in recognition of the increasing role women play in the global economy and in some quarters it is predicted that women will constitute the biggest emerging market in the world within the next 5 years.  This presents a tremendous opportunity for women and entrepreneurs and there is a need to engage in appropriate conversations in ensuring that women leaders are empowered and equipped to play their rightful role.

Are women ready to play the role?  What is needed to equip them? What should be the elements of the support program? What do women need?  The event will create a platform to explore these and other related questions.  When you read this please spare a moment to give an input
