VOW FM 88.1 Wits School of Governance

Wits School of Governance

The Wits School of Governance is hosting a number of events in August to give women a platform to “take up space”. We want to use these forums to learn from women, we want our guests to share their knowledge, wisdom and leave us feeling more inspired and on a trajectory for healing, growth and creativity. Our all women panels throughout the month will cover issues around women in business, leadership, crisis communication and gender-based violence (especially during COVID-19).
