Marie Claire (South Africa) - - GENDER REPORT -

‘Speak­ing out, shar­ing ideas, mak­ing govern­ment work bet­ter, mak­ing your em­ploy­ees treat you bet­ter – none of these things hap­pen with­out SPEAK­ING UP AND SPEAK­ING OUT. It’s not about be­ing loud, it’s about be­ing con­sis­tent, and demon­strat­ing that you have a stake in a con­ver­sa­tion, that you aren’t just in it to show off, you’re in it be­cause it mat­ters. It makes the con­ver­sa­tion a bet­ter one for us to be part of it. BE­ING OUT­SPO­KEN IS MORE IM­POR­TANT – every­where in the world – than it has ever been.’
