We want to end this women's month by sharing insights from some of our powerful female EWB-SA leaders. Some of the takeaways from these ladies were: - Always be yourself and back yourself. - No idea is ever wrong. - Network, network, network. - Many NPO organisations such as EWB-SA can give you platforms to grow yourself whilst helping your community. This month we learnt a great deal from many phenomenal women part of EWB-SA. We thank you and we celebrate you. At EWB-SA we strive to empower each other through various opportunities to network, serve our communities and expand our leadership capabilities.

It is easy to tell who the strong women are. They're the ones buidling each other up instead of tearing each other down. It takes a lot of courage being a female in STEM so as females in the industry you need to support each other whilst also encouraging the younger generation to join. Whether you are an industry professional or a university student there are a few things you can do to empower other females. How? A simple visit to your primary or high school could literally change a younger girls life. More than half of all women in STEM made the decision to be in this field because of seeing another women succeed in the field.

It is true that the rate of transformation for women in STEM continues to increase but we still have a long way to go. Here's an intersting statistic by Stats SA: In 2017, 96% of South African sound engineering graduates were all male. What do you think is the cause for this? Clearly something needs to change here! To celebrate womens month, we believe it is important that we educate ourselves on the causes of such statistics in order to start a dialog which ultimately leads to positive impact. So we encourage all the female engineers to consider taking mentorship roles and or acting as role models in their communities to inspire the next generation of female engineers. #Itbeginswithme #womensmonth #womeninSTEM ...

"We may have different coloured skin, different languages, different religions. But we all belong to one human race"" - Anon. Interpersonal racism is the most commonly experienced and therefore widely understood form of racism. But there's a newly forming argument that this may be just a symptom of other forms of racism that are built within our society. That is, institutional racism, a good example of this would be the "pay gap" between two people in the same occupational position of a company that is based on their race. The other being structural racism, an example here would be a national school curriculum which is designed to teach history that relates only to one race in a diverse country. These forms of racism are deeply embeded in the system and are hard to change. As a result, those that benefit from the system are at a better position for success causing a very big gap between the haves and the have nots. This is why we need to have these conversations, so we acknowledge these issues and find solutions as a society that benefit those in need and ultimately have everyone with the same level of opportunity to success. Can you think of simple things we can start doing to empower each other as a society? We'd love to hear you opinions, stories and suggestion so join us for a more in depth discussion on #teawithNoma by registering using the link in our bio. #teawithNoma #blacklivesmatter ... See more

EWB SA presents #TeaWithNoma a monthly online series kicking off this August. Our dynamic host Nomathemba Magagula has been to 14 countries over the past 4 years, gathering stories, writing poetry & embracing the full spectrum of her culture and heritage as a black woman. She has learnt a great deal about global economics, cultures & emerging markets which has been instrumental in shaping her leadership journey. In these sessions Noma and her guests will be discussing current topics which affect the engineering society as well as how they overcome some of the challenges they've faced while progressing in their careers and still do work that has positive impact in local communities. For the first session she'll be discussing "Black Lives Matter" in an African context with Paul Ssali and Vanessa Naicker as her special guests on the 15th of August 2020. #blacklivesmatter #leadership #africa Click the on link to reserve your spot. http://bit.postedthis.top/3c8SX ...
