College of Law and Management Studies Celebrates its Female Staff
The College of Law and Management Studies recently held a Women’s Day celebration for its female staff. The event which was held in partnership with Old Mutual saw over a 130 support and academic women staff members being empowered to make sound financial, personal, lifestyle and wellness decisions for the future.
The programme which was facilitated by School of Management, Information Technology and Governance lecturer, Dr Mogie Subban saw speakers such as Old Mutual’s Development Manager, Ms Manju Munsamy whose talk: Pay Yourself First, advised women on how they can achieve financial freedom.
To encourage women to get over the fear of making life changing decisions in their career and personal lives, The du Boirs, boutique lodge, wedding and conference venue shared her story of how she left a successful career as an Ophthalmologist to follow her dream.
‘You have to do what you love and the success will bring the money. I have always known that my passion is to fulfil the needs of the community that is why I had to be involved in a business and create employment. As women, we have a huge network but we are not and we have to work together and strategise so we can make the world shake!’ she said.
Mix it, Match It, Love It was the tittle of Milady’s Marketing Manager, Ms Philippa Feher who did a practical demonstration on clothing combinations that women can wear this summer to build their confidence and ensure that they are on trend.
The ladies also had an opportunity to participate in a lucky draw with prizes from Milady’s Honey jewellery and Heaven On Earth day Spar, Independent Newspapers and many more up for grabs.
College Public Relations Manager, Ms Hazel Langa said the rationale behind the event is to show the women in the College that they are appreciated and to improve collegiality. This initiative is planned to be an annual event on the College’s events calendar.
