15 Aug WOZA Africa Awards
On 30 July 2022, the #WOZA Awards were held at Emperors Palace. There were 33 categories with worthy nominees in the legal fraternity from across our beautiful Continent.
It was a real honour to receive an award on the night, especially in the category of Corporate Law, which is one of the areas we specialise in.
The challenges of women legal practitioners were also highlighted by Justice Raymond Zondo and it was heartening to observe his in-depth appreciation of the role we play in the legal fraternity, as well as the work that needs to be done to increase the standing of women in the legal profession.
Personally, I would like to see more women practicing in specialised areas such as those I am in ( Corporate Law, Commercial Law, Competition Law, Aviation Law as well as Governance).
As a business, we have started this journey through our mentorship program and I really look forward to the day when I can see some of our mentees being nominated and receiving many awards!!
I am grateful to Rehana Khan Parker and her team for creating these amazing awards. The evening was so well executed and reflected the love and energy that went into the arrangements. Here’s to many more!! Namaste!
