Leading like a woman – Fundi Nzimande

Fundi Nzimande unpacks her book Leading like a Woman. (Editing: Nicholas Boyd)

15th July 2020


Font size: -+

This book is the brainchild of Fundi Nzimande, a former Commissioner in the Commission for Gender Equality (CGE) and the Commission for Employment Equality (CEE).

The book reflects on how effective women lead and proposes the integration of these leadership approaches by men, women and others. The book looks at how best to integrate culture, human rights and gender equality. It also argues for the use of 'leading like a woman' in transformation of spaces and it provides practical advice for new leaders and leaders who want to 'lead like a Woman'. The art of  'leading like a woman' is a conscious exercise that deepens democracy; ensures inclusivity; as well as develops, builds and affirms people.
