“Therefore, it is important to encourage and acknowledge women or women-led organisations for the work they’re doing, knowing that it will bring progress for 

this generation and the generations to come.” he said.

The company said this initiative is their way of “showing that we see the work that is being done and give women the recognition they deserve for powering through these tough times”. 

The women will get a chance to share their stuff, spokeswoman Shivani Chetram said in a statement.

“There are a lot of women in South Africa who are doing amazing work and we believe that by creating exposure of this work, we afford an opportunity for progress together,” she said.
