WITH the vision of empowering women in her community, event organiser Noluvuyo Sodela will be hosting an entrepreneur workshop on Saturday, at the Black Impala Tshisa Nyama in Grahamstown Road.

According to Sodela, the purpose of the workshop is to mobilise women in the Metro to create their own job opportunities as creative entrepreneurs by providing a platform for relationship-building, collaboration and business support.

Under the theme ‘Another Woman’s Trash Is Another Woman’s Treasure’ the event promises a day of dialogue discussions and networking sessions focusing on the challenges that women face in the work place and society in general.

“Discussions will be aimed at seeking solutions and we will also look at ways in which one can get assistance when looking for funding in order to start a business,” the 25-year-old said.

Explaining how the theme came about, she said the title was inspired by individuals in society who undermine other people’s jobs.

“For example, if a person sells vegetables at the robots, they get undermined, whereas that specific job is that individual’s treasure,” Sodela said.

The Kwazakhele-based 25-year-old said the workshop would also include sessions with a variety of well established, as well as up-and-coming entrepreneurs, ranging from make-up artists, who will be sharing beauty tips, to fashion designers, as well as a local wellness coach who will be offering healthy life style tutorials.

“There will also be prize vouchers up for grabs sponsored by the Isango Boutique Hotel and Manatis Nail Bar.”

Tickets are available for R100 at the Black Impala Tshisa Nyama.
