Shoprite understands the vital role that women play in society. As a result, the Company is involved in a range of initiatives aimed at the empowerment of women and recently joined forces with Absa to produce a nationwide campaign entitled Women Who Lead.
The campaign will have three cinema screenings of separate panels of influential business role models and opinion leaders discussing a range of topics including entrepreneurship, finance, women in business and lifestyle issues. Pre-recorded in a high definition production studio, the broadcasts will be encoded and distributed to fourteen Ster-Kinekor cinemas in main centres nationwide.
The second programme in the series will be screened on 12 August 2010 and will, in celebration of Women’s Day, focus on how far women have come since 9 August 1956 - when 20 000 courageous women marched to protest the pass laws enforced by the government of the time - to now take their place as leaders of South African society.
Venete Klein (Chief Corporate Affairs and Sustainability Officer, Absa Bank) will be the guest speaker. Irene Charnley (Chief Executive Officer, Smile Communications) and Liza Albrecht (Editor, Rapport) will head the panel. The panel will include Phuti Malabie (Managing Director, Shanduka Energy [Pty] Ltd) and Professor Teboho Moja (Chair Judge in the Shoprite Checkers Women of the Year Award 2010, Educators Category) and together they will discuss topical issues that will move and inspire you. The panel will be hosted by award-winning TV journalist Siki Mgabadeli (Senior Business Anchor, CNBC Africa).
The screening of these discussions will take place at 08:00 for 08:30 until 10:00 at these Ster-Kinekor theatres around the country:
