On today’s show, we explore the topic of women in leadership. Women are unfortunately still lacking in the leadership spaces in Africa and the world as a whole. What needs to be done to put us as women in more leadership positions. In the ABCs, we look at the skills needed for women to be more successful leaders. Some leaders are born but the majority of leaders in the workplace today are made. Becoming a successful leader requires deliberate action and for you to look at what skills you can develop and grow. We then look at the importance of mentoring and getting mentorship for women. We need someone to talk to, a guide and someone who can push us in the right direction career-wise and the significance of this is highlighted in the show. We are joined over the phone by Dr. Erieka Benette who is part of the team organizing the Africa Women of Excellence awards in South Africa and she shares the importance of having more women in leadership. Finally, in our tech and trends, Kudzai gives a list of online leadership courses available for women.
