Join City Press for a panel dis­cus­sion ti­tled The Eco­nomic Div­i­dend of Di­ver­sity and fa­cil­i­tated by editor at large Mondli Makhanya. The dis­cus­sion is one of the events at the first an­nual Lead­erex Con­fer­ence, which takes place at the Sand­ton Con­ven­tion Cen­tre on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 17.

With the new BBBEE codes and the dis­mal re­sults of the women in lead­er­ship sur­vey, the dis­cus­sion cen­tres on why com­pa­nies need to un­der­stand that trans­for­ma­tion is not a game of box-tick­ing, but that when it’s un­der­taken with in­tegrity and a pas­sion for change, it can grow a com­pany’s com­pet­i­tive­ness and, sub­se­quently, its bot­tom line. On the panel are:

Farzanah Mall, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Busi­ness­women’s As­so­ci­a­tion of SA and a di­rec­tor in the ad­vi­sory risk con­sult­ing di­vi­sion at KPMG;

Lumka Mh­lahlo, en­ter­prise de­vel­op­ment man­ager at the Gor­don In­sti­tute of Busi­ness Science;

Duma Gqubule, co-founder of KIO Ad­vi­sory Ser­vices, which pro­vides clients with strate­gic ad­vice on eco­nomic trans­for­ma­tion and how to im­ple­ment it; and

Chris van Wyk, CEO of AQRate, and co-au­thor of two publi­ca­tions: The Black Eco­nomic Score­card Man­ual and Em­pow­er­men­tor. He has also drafted sev­eral amended BEE sec­tor codes. The panel dis­cus­sion be­gins at the Sand­ton Con­ven­tion Cen­tre on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 17, at 5.30pm.
