Old mutual celebrated women in the company in style after re-launching the ‘Our Women Networking’ (OWN) programme.
The event, held at the Lugogo Sun at Ezulwini last Thursday, was in commemoration of the International Women’s day which is celebrated on March 8.
One of the guest speakers on the night, Sharon Maziya, spoke about how women could find themselves in a corner office in their workplace if they work hard but emphasised that such will not happen overnight, as it requires a lot of patience.
She stated that women in business also need to master the art of working on themselves in order to get to the top. “As you aspire to get to the top, you should be willing to sacrifice. As a woman, one needs to ensure they set a daily routine as this will ensure order. Also, humility is important in the workplace,” she said.
She further advised women not to rely on their respective organisations but to work hard in improving their skills for growth purposes.
Meanwhile, Psychologist Celeste Jacobs advised the women to take care of themselves and also to consider their priorities.
She further warned against gossiping and talking negative about others, as this results in an unprogressive and an unethical work environment. Pastor Rose Mazibuko of Mbabane Alliance Church, on the other hand, highlighted on the importance of spiritual balance, especially in the workplace, as most women had a tendency of being Christian at home but as soon as they arrive at the workplace, they forget who they are.
