35 Ferguson Rd, Illovo, Sandton
T-Junction presents the Second Gentlemen’s Lunch with Dr Gaby Magomola, Author (Robben Island to Wall Street), Business Leader and Robin Island detainee with more than 40 years Banking Experience. Our last guest Prof. Bonang Mohale set a springboard for our second conversation on the 8th. He challenged us as new generation of leaders to look beyond politics but use business to address challenging economic opportunities, infrastructure and empowering those with less resources.
Men as a collective have a sociatal responsibility to lead this and to support all (men & women) in society & business through defined, clear and intentional communicated strategies and programs. This role for many has become secondary and for some especially those men in business has become less recognised and overlooked.
- So how can we as businessmen with a common mindset,
- Set a spring board to work with current leaders (especially empowered black leaders in corporate),
- Change the narrative create a supportive ecosystem/network of competent businessmen,
- Support women led business without demeaning the existence and role of intentional competent men in business and society,
- Work with all business leaders from all races to be international in transformation (beyond BBBEE)?
The space is big enough for all to play in it , the question is what are leaders doing or should be doing to empower the next generation of business leaders? What is the role of men in promoting, protecting and supporting vulnerable groups without renaging on their role? Lastly what are the leaders that were empowered by policies , programs and structure such as; BMF, BBBEE, FABCOS, BBC and others doing to empower and lift others just as they were lifted and supported?
A lot can be done if the right environment is created and we will start the non-political but business focused initiatives, corporate leaders please keep your doors open , we come in peace.
