We are starting a brand new series this week – The Sit Down Womenomics Week, which aims to call on South African,s especially corporates, to make a concerted effort to accelerate women’s participation in the economy.

In today’s discussion, we gear towards finding and implementing solutions to change status quo in the workplace.
