0. Intro & Welcome
Women’s Day is very special in South Africa during the Women’s Month of August. That’s why we would like to commemorate this day together with you. In celebration of the 1956 Great Women’s March, where more than 20,000 strong women marched to the Union Building to protest against the extension of Pass Laws to women, Women’s Day is celebrated every year on August 9. Join us for enlightening talks where we explore the profound relationship between 'Man' and 'Machine' in the age of AI, conscious choices, and the future economy.
Discover the power of resilience and learn practical techniques to find balance, reduce stress, and embrace a happier, healthier life. We will also hear from a panel of Women in industry about Allyship, Psychological Safety, the imposter phenomenon and promoting yourself in the workplace. (edited)
