In the 21st century, women are more powerful than ever. Women are working in every possible field of work shoulder to shoulder with men. Women are reaching heights in every field from social, economic to a political and legal field. To celebrate the spirit of women empowerment every year August 9 is celebrated as Women’s Day and the theme for this year was “Be Bold for Change”.
As the Tshwane North TVET College, the day was celebrated on the 15 th August in the Collegium Hall of Pretoria Campus.
As a college we celebrated the day to acknowledge the women in the College as large. The principal of the College, Ms Thembi Tsibogo, shared her personal experience or testimony with the women about the journey which reconciled her with God and being given a second chance to work and she encouraged women to take their jobs seriously and value what they have.
Among the women was Ms Mildred Nkopane Chief Director in the Premiers office, who graced us with her presence reading the speech of the DG, Ms Phindile Baleni, who had put emphasis on women changing the negative mind set, appreciating themselves and embracing youngsters in the workplace.
