Twelve black women of note — women who have excelled in their respective fields — have graciously narrated their life stories and views about their success.
Conceptualised from the need to map the field of women at work and recognising the lack of accessible evidence-based writing about women in paid work in South Africa, the Women’s Report was born in 2011. Initial topics revolved around the author’s choices and interests but soon the Women’s Report developed into an authoritative annual publication about topical themes relating to the life-worlds and lived experiences of African women.
The Women’s Report informs academic, practitioner and line manager audiences. Interest from the public has grown strongly since 2014 when the topic of Work and Women’s Reproduction was introduced. The Women’s Report 2020 is proudly sponsored by the University of Stellenbosch Business School and is distributed in association with the South African Board for People Practices (SABPP).
