Women in business, be true to yourselves
How to succeed authentically

What to expect

There is only one woman CEO of a JSE Top-40 company. Women make up only a fifth of the directors who serve on the boards of JSE-listed companies. Given these stats, women with leadership ambitions would be forgiven for thinking that they need to be more like men to make it to the top. 

Not so, say women executives who have scaled the corporate ladder by being true to themselves. 

Megan Pydigadu, group finance director at EOH, says that while she believes women can network more like men, they can bring their own unique approaches and attitudes to the table. 

Candice Watson, group human capital executive at AECI, who is currently enrolled in a doctorate in Business Administration through UCT, pursuing her research interests in Women in Management, will share a blend of her own experiences and academic insight into the topic. 

And Inge Walters, leadership practitioner, will bring her insights as a facilitator and coach, with extensive experience in developing women leaders, to the discussion. 

This webinar will explore what these three leaders believe women can do for themselves – and others – to gain a seat at the table and improve representation for good.
