The South Africa team celebrated Women’s Day this September with a host of exciting activities. Not only were they treated to some much deserved pampering in the form of skin, health and beauty consultants but they were also given a guest talk by one of our enterprise development beneficiaries, Bridgette, who shared her journey about being a women in the workplace and the challenges that she’s had to overcome in order to succeed. This provided the ladies with a wonderful platform to impart their thoughts on women in the workplace, the highs and lows and how important it is for us to communicate our experiences with each other in order for us to grow.
In true Dell style our ladies decided to ‘pay-it-forward’ and donated personal care items which have been delivered to the girls at one of our local Powering the Possible charities, Christel House South Africa (CHSA). The aim of CHSA is to break the cycle of poverty by providing a holistic learning experience for every child.
Thank you to each of the ladies at Dell who keep reminding us that behind every successful woman is herself. We hope that you all had a special Women’s Day 2014.
