Hazyview Digital Learning Campus Wins Gender Diversity Award

We are proud to announce that, with our partners at T-Systems South Africa, Good Work Foundation’s Hazyview Digital Learning Campus (HDLC) has been named WINNER of theEmpowerment of Women in the Community Award at the annual 2016 Gender Mainstreaming Awards sponsored by PricewaterhouseCoopers.

This is South Africa’s premier event in gender diversity and to accept this accolade on behalf of the incredibly innovative and resilient women that we work with in rural Mpumalanga is a tremendous honour.

Women make up 86% of all HDLC non-paying students. In addition, 70% of our team, and 80% of our business consultants are women. Our ICT literacy programme at the Hazyview, Justicia and Philippolis campuses is delivered by all-women teams. Women make up 60% of the HODs at HDLC.

Lastly, over the last 18 months, our media team, led by a woman, has published more than 30 stories celebrating women on our blog.

By far, our favourite story featuring a woman in the last year is the recent video about HDLC receptionist, Deliwe Tibane, who was featured in the Absa Propser film series.

Thank you to the organisations, businesses, partners, men, and especially women (from all over the world), who make it possible for us to have impact in our beautiful country. We are proud to accept this award in collaboration with our longtime partners and team at T-Systems South Africa who won three awards at the event.

We would also like to convey our congratulations to our partners at Barclays Africa who were the overall category winners in the Investing in Young Women Award.
