Women In Business
Women in Business 2020 | Industry Biases
The workplace environment for women has changed drastically in recent years however, women still face a powerful yet subtle and often invisible barrier to equality, recognition and growth in the work place. These biases arise from cultural assumptions and organisational structures, practices, and patterns of interaction that inadvertently benefit men while putting women at a disadvantage.
In light of International Women’s Day, HBC-SA and FSACCI are proud to present our second annual event series:
Women in Business
In partnership with Mazars, Polygot Group and Fasken.
This much anticipated event will kick off with a panel discussion on industry biases, with a focus on the ‘traditionally’ male-associated industries such as Mining and Energy.
Thereafter, we will celebrate and engage with the women in our respective networks over a Speed-Mentoring Session.
What is speed-mentoring?
Women just entering or in the start of their career get the opportunity to network and receive advice from senior women in business. Get information about your career, how to achieve success and tips and tricks of the trade. We invite all women to register for this event either as a junior or senior profile, and let’s help strengthen women in business!
Finally, we will conclude the event with a networking cocktail – an opportunity to strengthen our networks of women whilst sipping a glass of bubbly.
