Tigresses gather for inaugural Tiger Brands Women’s
On 18 May, our Chief Corporate Affairs & Sustainability Officer, Mary-Jane Morifi, hosted
a Tiger Brands Senior Women’s Workshop at Avianto in Muldersdrift. We thought we’d share some of the
details and the outcome with you.
The programme director for the day was Na'eemah Chothia-Salloo – HR Shared Service Operations
Manager (Isando) – and the guest speaker was Nozipho January-Bardill. Nozipho
specialises in ethical leadership, diversity and human rights at work, and is also a motivational
public speaker. The topic of her keynote address was: “The mechanics
Her message was: “If we take time to learn the mechanics of stereo-typing, we will know how
to deal with all types of stereo-typing and how to stop the virtual cycle that moves from one
generation to another and in our organisation.”
This is what Mary-Jane had to say about the outcome of the workshop: “On a very chilly
(three degrees Celsius!) morning, a group of phenomenal women gathered, with the aim of understanding
the mechanics and the system of patriarchy in order to start building Gender Consciousness.”
