Despite the enormous gains made by women in the workplace, gender disparities persist. More than a third of South African households are headed by women and women are around 40% poorer than those headed by men, with women earning up to 30% less than their male counterparts. These are fundamental gaps that we must fill in all aspects of society, including the financial sector, and with the support of men.
The Momentum #SheOwnsHerSuccess campaign kicked off on August 1 and runs throughout August, promising a series of workshops and panel discussions aimed at equipping women with relevant skills. These skills include engaging in personal branding exercises, learning how to negotiate the salary you are worth, overcoming impostor syndrome in the workplace, relying on support structures to manage burnout, and partnership and managing money to leave the financial legacy your loved ones deserve. .
