Read time: 3 mins

In a world where gender equality is a work in progress, embracing opportunities that drive change is not just important – it is our responsibility.  As we gear up for this year's Women's Indaba, I'm excited to explain why you absolutely cannot afford to miss out on this year's eagerly anticipated event.

The Women's Indaba is a collaborative effort between the GBV Prevention Unit and the Student Affairs Division, aimed at breaking through gender biases and empowering women across diversities. With the theme 'Building a Society that Promotes Women’s Leadership,' this event goes beyond words; it's a dynamic platform fostering dialogue, forging connections, and equipping you with invaluable leadership skills.

Mark your calendars for September 1, 2023, and head to the Sports Complex, Alice Campus. The Women's Indaba is not just any event; it is a gathering of diverse voices – students, staff, and community members – all united with a single purpose: to drive change.

Why should you be part of this transformative journey?

Because the Women's Indaba transcends mere words. It is an opportunity to roll up your sleeves and participate in meaningful conversations; a place where diverse voices converge. If you've yearned for a platform where your voice truly counts, where your experiences are valued, then the Women's Indaba is your stage.

This is no ordinary event. It's an investment in yourself. It’s a moment to build bridges, share stories, and amplify your voice. It's a chance to gain skills that will not only boost your academic and professional journeys but also empower you to drive change in the world around you. We firmly believe that every woman has within her the potential to lead, to inspire, and to effect change. This event will equip you with tools to do just that.

Importantly, this year's Women's Indaba aligns with the University of Fort Hare's commitment to advancing gender equality and societal transformation. It stands as a testament to our dedication to creating an environment where women's leadership is championed and nurtured, echoing the recommendations of the Council on Higher Education.

Rest assured, this isn't just another event on your calendar. It's an experience that will leave you inspired and equipped. Don't miss this chance to be part of a movement that's breaking barriers and shaping a future where women's leadership thrives. Join us on this empowering journey, as we challenge norms, celebrate diversity, and redefine leadership.

Become a part of something larger than yourself. Together, let's shape a society where it is normal for women to lead, inspire, and leave an enduring impact. Join us for an opportunity to learn and connect.
