18th COMETSA PMS Lekgotla Network (Public Event)
Women Empowerment Network (WEN): Since 2011 we have been hosting Women Empowerment sessions to support and empower women in their effort to play meaningful roles in the key sectors of our economy. This does not mean that men are excluded from this network. As long as they support the objectives of emancipating our female citizens, they are welcome to participate. You educate and empower the women; you educate and empower the nation and the world. We do not see ourselves as collaborators with our sisters, mothers and partners in their own development and empowerment. Men and women come together to equally engage with the issues that are affecting women in the society, both in their private and professional lives.
As a society, nation and the world, we will be doing ourselves a great favour by allowing women to equally practice their natural and learned skills, including management and leadership. This network is a platform on which women are asserted and supported. But men too are allowed to bring in their views, experiences, and commitment to collaborate with women in our society. We go beyond celebrating women special national days. We act on issues of women empowerment. Women are encouraged to take the leadership in their own empowerment and challenge men to be supportive of these programmes and initiatives. There is a need to consolidate these women programmes and initiatives in South Africa to achieve maximum impact. Women are in the majority in South Africa. Their active participation in the economic activities of the country will increase our economic production, management and leadership capacity. This will make us economically competitive in the continent and globally. This is not a favour to women, but economic resource needs that cannot be ignore any longer
