NETCARE St Anne’s Hospital participated in the 15th anniversary of the “Take A Girl To Work” initiative last Thursday.

Netcare St Anne’s Marketing Officer Shubnum Ismail said the participation was part of their social responsibility towards reshaping a future that will be characterised by gender equality and empowerment.

“Various inspirational women at Netcare in leadership positions have provided nearly 3 000 girls with exposure to different career opportunities in the private health-care industry over the past five years. Young women have also been reaffirmed that they can pursue their dreams and ambitions and become vibrant contributors to the economy and social change.”

This year’s theme, “dream, believe, achieve”, inspires young women and girls to believe in themselves, to recognise the possibilities around them and to make a difference in their own lives.

“Once again, we had made resources available to empower young women with the right information, knowledge and understanding to change their lives and positively influence the lives of those around them.”

Shubnum said they encouraged them to speak up for their rights and the rights of those around them and to believe in their capability to create opportunities that may lead to social change within their respective areas of influence.
