During Women’s Month we hosted events and talks with the aim of encouraging women to own their success and to keep it in motion.
This is the 2nd year during Women’s Month that we’ve purposefully changed our name to honour every woman – and her limitless potential. Womentum is the action behind our intention - which is to be here for every woman’s journey to success.
Women who don’t apologise for their success; keep their
success in motion.

#SheOwnsHer Success workshops
During Women’s Month, we hosted workshops presented by the highly-influential “mom-trepreneur” Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp. The workshops showcased women who are telling their stories and who are unapologetic about their success - using their voices to share their success with those who need it the most – other women.
Esther Wojcicki on believing in yourself and owning your success
At our first event held on 17 August we introduced you to Esther Wojcicki. Esther is famous for 3 things: teaching a high school class that has changed the lives of thousands of students; raising 3 daughters who have each become famously successful (CEO of YouTube, Founder and CEO of 23andMe, and a top medical researcher) and inspiring Silicon Valley legends like Steve Jobs. What do these 3 accomplishments have in common? They are the result of T.R.I.C.K, Esther’s secret to raising successful people: Trust, Respect, Independence, Collaboration, and Kindness. Simple lessons, but the results are radical. Her new book, How to Raise Successful People: Simple Lessons for Radical Results, explains it all. A further two workshops took place on 19 and 26 August 2020.
SALUTING WOMEN WHO ARE OWNING THEIR SUCCESS
We’ve turned the “M” of our name to a “W”
We marked the beginning of Women’s Month by turning the “M” in our name to a “W”. It’s our way of recognising the efforts and courage of the women who not only occupy our offices, but our country too. To you, we say: you’ve earned your success - own it. South Africa, let’s stand proudly beside every woman as #SheOwnsHerSuccess

WOMENTUM SHORT STORIES
Stories to inspire you to keep your momentum
A successful woman is a woman who creates success on her own terms. Success doesn’t have to mean earning the best salary, buying the latest new thing, landing a high-powered job, or looking a certain way. Finding success means staying true to yourself and your own definition of success.
