“When women and girls rise, their communities and their countries rise with them”

The US’s former First Lady, Michelle Obama, could not have said it better.

Women employment in South Africa

Stats SA Q2 labour force survey, shows that unemployment rates for women in SA have grown from 26.6% in 2008 to 29.8% in 2017.

This upsetting statistic, along with the exceptionally high rates of abuse against women (in South Africa 1 in 5 women are physically abused by their intimate partner) drove the online media platform #BossLady Media to find a valuable and easily accessible offering that could support all South African women, both professionally and in their personal lives.


‘We needed a ‘bulk’ solution to support South African women across the board. Whether they are looking for employment, career growth or the inner strength to make positive personal changes.’ says #BossLady co-founder Zamathango Thango.

‘Both Gilda and I have both been on long self-development journeys of our own. And we can see the huge leaps forward in our careers and personal development through continuous learning.’ Watch Zamathango Thango unpack this here.

With this in mind, the team approached some of South Africa’s leading learning platforms. ‘We were looking for specific courses that would address the challenges that South African women are facing.’


The response has been overwhelmingly positive, allowing #Bosslady to create the ‘Boost to Best’ offering, made up of 11 curated courses and mindset development tools, specifically for women. The courses are geared at supporting the personal and professional development of women. Ultimately equipping them with new skills to boost their resumes or fast-track their career trajectory.
