The women behind the SAPBB Women’s Report

Prof Anita Bosch compiles South Africa’s only Women’s Report along with her list of fine contributors in conjunction with the University of Johannesburg and the South African Board of People Practices. Prof Anita Bosch, Dr Lize Barkley, and Comissioner Nthabiseng Moleko have been exceptionally busy with press coverage. Here’s some of what you’ve missed.

Nthabiseng Moleko, USB Lecturer
in Managerial Economics and Statistics

“Encouraging young women into STEM education and training would not only reduce the overall shortage of scarce and critical skills, but also strengthen women’s economic empowerment by moving them from vulnerable positions in low-skilled and informal jobs to the stability of the formal economy.”

Prof Anita Bosch, Associate Professor at USB

“The Report is important because we really want to see to it that women in South Africa do not completely become dependent on social grants. There’s no reason for that. If we build the economy together and we ensure that women are well-skilled to take up positions that they don’t usually think of, such as those in male-dominated environments, then we can strengthen the economy. Blue-collar work is at the heart of that.”
