Ep 20: Dealing with Disappointment - feat. Agnes Sibanda

We've all had that experience: not getting the job we applied for, being passed up for a promotion, not getting the pitch or tender, or being overlooked when we thought we were the ideal candidate. Disappointment is a bitter pill to swallow, especially when we’ve worked hard or feel suitably qualified.

In episode 20 Nevelia Moloi speaks to Agnes Sibanda, an entrepreneur and a youth talent catalyst. Agnes shares her lessons on overcoming disappointment and offers advice to young people as they navigate their way through the world of work.

Spoiler alert: Nevelia also gets candid about a Dear Jane letter she recently received from Google ...

Ep 19: How to manage change

A question on everyone’s minds during this Covid-19 pandemic has been, “how do I manage change?” This pandemic has brought with it an unprecedented amount of change for all of us, from school closures and social distancing, to business transitions and personal life changes.

In episode 19, Nevelia Moloi speaks to two women who have navigated their way through significant changes of their own. There’s Alyssa Conley, a track and field athlete who decided to sidestep her way off the athletics track and onto the rugby field. And Kim Foster Yardley, a South African psychologist now based in Toronto, Canada, who is a self-confessed queen of change.

We’ll hear from these women how they’ve navigated their way through changes in their own lives – and what they’ve learnt along the way. Think of this as your crash-course in change management.

Ep 18: Who do you want to be beyond lockdown?

When you wrote down your #2020goals we’re almost certain “Survive a pandemic” was not on your list! And yet that’s exactly where we find ourselves now. COVID-19 has changed our lives in irrevocable ways and we have all experienced life under some form of lockdown.

In episode 18 Nevelia Moloi asks the question: “Who do you want to be beyond lockdown?” And, according to her, we have 3 options. Take a listen and decide which option is for you.

Ep 17: It’s a men’s issue

What are men’s voices doing on a show for women who want to thrive at work? What they should have been doing a long time ago: taking a stand against toxic masculinity and doing their part to eradicate gender-based violence.

So say the collective voices on our show today.

Gender-based violence has so many facets and one episode is not adequate enough to cover it. But the men on this episode agree about one thing: it’s a men’s issue more than anything else.

In episode 17 of Hungry Woman at Work, Nevelia Moloi speaks to Jaco van Schalkwyk, founder of The Character Company, Beverly Gumede of Lawyers against Abuse, and a few other men who are saying “GBV stops with me”.

Ep 16: How to build an online business - feat. Genecia Alluora

Starting an online business, or moving your brand from offline to online can be intimidating for anyone. It’s even more intimidating for the woman who is somewhat technophobic, or feels like she doesn’t have enough time to figure out this online thing.

Genecia Alluora, founder of Soul Rich Woman - the biggest network of female entrepreneurs in South-East Asia, is all about helping women entrepreneurs “shortcut their success” through building an online business. In addition to some very practical, technical tips for building your brand digitally, she also shares her insights on some of the limiting mindsets and beliefs we first need to overcome as women.

The story of this former Miss Singapore starts from humble beginnings, and is testament to her belief that as women, “alone we are strong, together we are unstoppable”.

Ep 15: Disrupting through innovation - meet the founders of Instaglam Express

“In the midst of doing hair we realised the whole world is changing all around us but the beauty industry is not changing - what is happening?”

Doing things differently or, not doing things the way they’ve always been done, is not always encouraged. In this episode Nevelia Moloi speaks to two women who have experienced first-hand that innovation is not always celebrated.

Natasha Summers and Chris Fisher are co-owners of Share Hair salon. Over the years they’d become so successful at their hairdressing craft, they had clients on waiting lists!

But one day they realised the world around them was changing, but their industry was not. And so they set out to do something which at the time was unthinkable: to introduce technology into a techno-scared industry.

As founders of Instaglam Express, an app for the hair and beauty industry, they share their insights on how to step out of your comfort zone and disrupt through innovation.

Ep 14: “Make every season count” – Rumbidzai Chisenga

What season of life do you currently find yourself in: an exuberant summer, an uncertain autumn or an overwhelming winter? More importantly, how are you responding to the season? Are you trying to make the most of every moment or are you desperately wanting to go into hibernation and hope it passes soon?

In episode 14, Nevelia Moloi chats to Rumbidzai Chisenga, a consultant in the international development space whose work revolves around strengthening governance institutions.

Rumbidzai shares why it’s important to understand the season you’re in and adjust yourself accordingly. “The most important thing about seasons might just be about contentment. I am here, I’m not always gonna be here, but I’ve got to make this season count,” she says.

She also offers her take on how to make your introverted nature work to your advantage in a loud and contested workplace.

Ep 13: The Confidence Gap at Work

There’s been a lot of talk around women and the confidence gap at work. One school of thought says women get overlooked for promotions because “they’re not confident enough”.

But others say that, what shows up as a lack of confidence is really a mix of different reasons. Some of those include a fear of backlash, being taught that others – not yourself – should praise your work, and generational gender norms of how women should present themselves (i.e. sweetly and quietly!)

Host Nevelia Moloi, Mwansa Chokolo, an actuary working in the insurance industry, and Khodani Nematei, a youth development manager chat about women and the confidence gap at work.

Ep 11: "You can turn your passion into profit" - Miabo Enyadike

“I turned my house into a gallery”

There was once a time when work, and passion were two distinct things. In this episode, Nevelia Moloi speaks to Miabo Enyadike, a businesswoman who makes a living off her passion, which is art. Miabo is an artpreneur and founder of Art Miabo and she shares how she’s turned her craft into a profitable career.

How’s this for a quotable quote: “If you drop a Nigerian in the Sahara Desert, they will sell sand to the people that have been living there!” Miabo says there are many things we can learn from Nigerian women, such as tenacity, innovation, and how to run a business with no electricity.

You’ll feel challenged to look at your hobbies and passion projects with new eyes.

Ep 9: When life throws you curveballs... and how to survive loadshedding

What do you when things don't go the way you planned, when you thought things were going a certain way and then life got, erm, interrupted?

In South Africa right now, there's a national "interrupter" called loadshedding, causing quite some havoc.

In this minisode, Nevelia Moloi asks a few HWaW listeners how they are surviving the interruption of loadshedding - and how they respond when faced with the curveballs of life.

Also listen out for what the epic Black Panther scene featuring Okoye and a raging war rhino has in common with a life interrupted.
