Bring it on – The women of Sabinet
31 Aug 2018
Unity and strength in numbers drove 20,000 women of all races to the Union Buildings in South Africa’s capital 62 years ago to demand that a woman should not have to carry a pass to exist in society. SA History states that the women “famously challenged the idea that ‘a woman’s place is in the kitchen’, declaring it instead to be ‘everywhere’.” Let’s be sure now, that in celebrating woman in August 2018, that everywhere means everywhere; proven by the likes of the women of Sabinet.
Their bring it on attitude towards growth, innovation and sustainable impact has shown to be, and will continue being a truly masterful approach to dealing with very technically advanced landscapes across all of Sabinet’s range of services and offerings. Often thought of as a man’s world, the Sabinet leadership team boasts the cutting-edge advantage of four senior level female groundbreakers (including Rosalind Hattingh, Managing Director of Sabinet) who are dedicated to the success of every single one of their partners and clients..
This unique passion shared by the Sabinet community has driven over three decades of innovation and service. Just like those thousands of women in 1956, who gathered before the age of digital communication – Sabinet is focused on opportunity, equality, and access to information which nurtures education, and better’s the nation in which South African women live and lead.
Collaborative strategies drive the product and service development at Sabinet from day one, which solidifies Sabinet’s foothold in the content and service sectors of our global village. A steady foothold positions Sabinet squarely ahead of the pack, innovating, expanding, and writing the rules to their own success. The technological advancements of the last few years have disrupted industries one after the other. Sabinet is using this disruption to its advantage; learning and adapting to provide the best services possible, across the board.
Societies and organizations with better gender parity see better economic growth, a wider range of ideas being shared, and better understanding of ethics. Sabinet’s leadership team mirrors gender parity, and its 35-year record confirms the results.
