Celebrating The Success of Business Women This Women’s Month

This month we are celebrating National Women’s Month and it poses the perfect opportunity to reflect on the role of women in South African businesses.

According to the 2013 Grant Thornton International Business Report, women hold just over 25% of top decision-making roles in South African businesses and the 2013 report indicated that 29% of South African businesses aim to employ more women within the next year. While government and businesses have to take responsibility to further the role of women in business, owes still lies with South African women to tap into their unique strengths as women to achieve in business as well.
