The Womandla Foundation will be hosting the second Women in STEAM Awards on 28 August 2021.
The Awards shines light on the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and advocacy for STEM and recognizes excellence among those who strive to make a positive difference in their communities. This year we have included the ARTS industry to the categories, which demonstrates an exceptional use of arts and innovation in the STEM fields.
“Part of bridging the gender disparity is us taking the opportunity to celebrate women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics who against all odds are making outstanding contributions within their respective fields,” Says Rumbi Maisva, Head of STEAM at the Womandla Foundation.
The Womandla Women in STEAM Award winners will be announced on the morning of 28 August 2021 at the virtual award ceremony.
We encourage every female and organisation across South Africa to put forward their success stories with regards to gender empowerment.

This year, the awards will take on a hybrid approach and will take place at the MANCOSA Learning Centre in Cape Town and online.
The Grow My Business Africa Masterclass is back for the second running and will take place virtually AND physically in Cape Town.
The concept of the Masterclass stems from an Entrepreneur’s frustration of leaving a workshop or business conference inspired, but without deliverables, actionable steps or practical tools to apply in their business.
The objective is not to just inspire SMME’S and emerging entrepreneurs or professionals, but to EDUCATE them and provide tools that they can apply in their business or careers by means of a workbook.
Each attendee receives a Tailored Workbook on:
-Business Growth Strategies
-Finance and Funding
It gets depressing to work hard and have nothing to show for it. Join us as we learn from marketer, Sbusiso Kumalo, and Leaveil de Fountain from Allan Gray, on how to better position your business for Growth, financial literacy and how to access funding.

Join us this Month at the “Grow My Business Masterclass” in partnership with Leseli Creative Communications and Womandla Global Network. About the Masterclass: It is commonplace for entrepreneurs and business leaders to leave a conference feeling inspired, but rarely does one leave a conference with the right tools for change. The objective of the Grow Your Business Masterclass is to provide you with deliverables, actionable steps and practical tools to apply to your business.
Along with valuable insight from the keynote speakers, conference attendees will leave with a business manual that was made for this conference only that covers topics such as “How to structure your business for SCALE”, “Organisational Culture” and “Finance and Funding”.
