Black women’s ownership of the economy is at a mere 12% and the overall representation by women at top management is at 23.5%.

This is according to The Commission of Employment Equity report and the National Status and Trends on Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) report, and was discussed during a webinar hosted by the trade and industry deputy minister, the B-BBEE Commission and the Commission for Employment Equity on Monday morning, to look at the management control and the status of women based on the two recently published reports.

“These figures do not reflect South Africa’s demographics and the economically active population,” said B-BBEE Commissioner Zodwa Ntuli.
