Systematic Racism:

As a voice for change in South Africa, Kovini has been vocal around sharing her lived experiences as a woman of colour to break barriers and change narratives for all women.

Over the past few years, she has focused her attention on raising awareness around systematic racism, microaggressions, and stereotypes that remain challenging topics in the South African context.

Diversity, Equity and inclusion implementations are critical elements that contribute towards psychological safety and shape the culture of environments. Most importantly, is a sense of ” belonging ” that defines and solidifies employee loyalty and representation.

” It is important that as women, we own our stories, our own narratives and bravely share them to inspire generations beyond ourselves ” – Kovini Moodley
