Changing the workplace for working women with Dr. Shirley Zinn
This week on Womanity-Women in Unity, Dr. Amaleya Goneos-Malka talks to Dr. Shirley Zinn, who serves as a Non-Executive Director on several corporate boards (Sanlam, MTN, Spur, Boston Consulting Group, World Wildlife Fund etc…), she focusses on strategic human resources, business leadership, transformation and women’s development. Dr. Zinn candidly bares pains and gains from her life and finding purpose. We combine perspectives from women in the workplace, who juggle home commitments and personal ambition in conjunction with the responsibilities of companies to recognise the multidimensional nature of women, enable their talent through appropriate support and give them opportunities to grow. Human diversity is much more than ticking off boxes on a scorecard, it’s a source of innovation and creativity. The objective of an organisation is no longer just about the business of business, it is about its purpose in society. Dr Zinn’s story is one of hope, humanism, compassion, care, diligence and resilience. Tune in for more.
