Inspiring Women Leaders Workshop

August 30 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am

Accelerate Cape Town has partnered with global coaching partnership, Within People, to host a conversation with leaders across South Africa, US, UK and Asia to explore how leadership is changing.

Companies are often guilty of only paying lip service to diversity. In reality, only 2.2% of JSE-listed companies in South Africa have a female CEO. The overall percentage of female CEOs in the country, beyond JSE-listed companies, is sitting at 10%, which is lower than the global average of 12% (2017 SA Gender Disparity Report, Bain & Co).

The intention of this session is to surface more stories of women leaders, to explore how women are showing up as 21st century leaders, and to change the way women see themselves as leaders and the value they bring.

The session will be an open and facilitated conversation with successful women leaders, who will share their personal stories. You will have an opportunity to share some of your experiences too. We will cover:

  • The essential qualities of 21st century leaders
  • How this helps leaders build cultures that deliver growth
  • Some practical tips to change the way you lead

What you will get from the session:

  • Clarity: a sense of what a 21st century leader is and the value of this
  • Inspiration: insights and practical tips from other women leaders

Within People

Within People are a global partnership of business coaches who are building a new model for growth in the 21st century.

They believe leadership is a way of being, not a hierarchy. The role of every partner in this business is to build their capacity as a coach and to coach each other towards growth – managing the energy, seeing the big picture, and empowering others. In a 21st century business, anyone can develop the skills to become a leader – and coaching skills are leadership skills.

This workshop will be facilitated by Kim Hawke and Kate Clayton, Partners at Within People.

Please note, this event is for members of Accelerate Cape Town only
