Aug-2018: Diversity in Business Group Breakfast at Bowmans

Event date: 30 August 2018

Our Diversity in Business group meetup over breakfast, which was kindly being hosted by Bowmans at their Sandton offices has come and gone and was the perfect end to Women’s month and start of spring. Our chosen topic of Mentorship and Coaching paved the way as we now ask for volunteers who would like to take part in our own mentoring initiative.

Our two speakers Thomas Mphahlele, Head of Human Capital at Umsinsi Health Care, and Lillian Barnard, Director at Microsoft and Digital Transformation Leader, were most inspiring and gave us all fantastic tips and insight. We had a surprise gift to all attendees courtesy of group participant Mariam Shah from Awakening Excellence – thanks Mariam for the books!

As per the previous note, the group has been renamed “Diversity in Business”, which encompasses more accurately what the group is about. Women AND men are welcome as this group is a platform to make a difference in areas in business relating to diversity.

We look forward to growing this group and take our Mentoring and Coaching initiative forward. For more information, contact
