Tigresses gather for inaugural Tiger Brands Women’s Forum event



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 of stereo-typing”. 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.”
