Tuesday, 22 September 2020

Cell C has been nominated for the prestigious Standard Bank Top Women Awards in the Corporate Citizenship category.

Now in their 17th year, the Standard Bank Top Women Awards honours those individuals and companies whose unfailing vision and innovative leadership has helped women in South Africa. The awards recognise outstanding leadership for organisations which have shaped women's roles within the public & private sectors.

Over the last 17 years, the awards have recognised over 100 businesses and female leaders.

The Corporate Citizenship award specifically, is awarded to the organisation that had the greatest positive impact on quality of life and economic prosperity for South African women and girls this year. The effect these efforts have had on building a gender-empowered culture within the organisation is also assessed.

The award is in recognition of the work done under the company’s ‘Gender Equality’ pillar, which focuses on the empowerment of women. Cell C’s initiatives include Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work Day, the holistic online educational platform CellCgirl and the Cell C Girl Bursary Fund.

The event will take place remotely on 2nd October 2020. 

“We're extremely proud to have been selected as a finalist for these awards as it's affirmation of our continuous actions as a company to empower women,” says Juliet Mhango, Cell C’s Chief Officer for Human Capital Development and Transformation.
