Objectives

OUR FIRST STEP IS TO CREATE AN ONLINE PORTAL, SIMILAR TO A VIRTUAL NETWORK, WHERE YOUNG WOMEN CAN ACCESS ADVICE, REFERRALS AND APPLICATIONS FROM THEIR SUCCESSFUL FEMALE COUNTERPARTS.

We are continually seeking new partnerships in media, corporations and individuals to ensure that our message is loud and clear and that word spreads about The Tribe. This will enable us to profile women whom have played a role in changing South African society and inspiring other women to do the same.

Our aim is to grow the percentage of female executive directors on boards in the private sector and see measurable change year on year within all companies to support the promotion of women.
Our endeavour is not just about percentages, but also about creating a definitive shift in perceptions of gender equality in the workplace.
We are striving for a more equitable representation of women in boardrooms.
Our intention is to start conversations with captains of industry, whether male or female, about encouraging better work-life balance in organisations and to support women who continue to juggle work and home.
Our aim is to address women's concern that they will never break the glass ceiling without a supportive environment.
We will offer new networking opportunities for women in business.
Our platforms will be used to amplify the messages required for real change.
We will create a foundation to support girls' education, women in commerce and female entrepreneurs.
Our aim is to encourage mentorship.
Our awards are an incentive for corporates to be transparent in their adoption of gender equality and the mechanisms put in place to support the growth and success of women at board level, and to review their current gender equality initiatives.
