International Day of Women and Girls in Science honors Two SA women

Reports have proven that less than 30% of researchers worldwide are women. Although there has been a rise in the number of women carrying out studies in scientific fields, there are still relatively few women in science in the workplace.
 
Some of the challenges that women in science have to overcome include a sense of belonging, harassment and bullying, as well as being compensated differently from their male counterparts.“Despite these challenges, women, women with companies housed at The Innovation Hub, have broken down the barriers and have succeeded at creating innovations that aim to change the lives of those around them”, said Advocate Pieter Holl, CEO at The Innovation Hub.
 
To highlight the wonderful work being done by women, in what remains a largely male-centred industry, Innovation Hub honoured two South African women yesterday, in light of International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Sibongile Mongadi and Kathryn Malherbe are adding tremendous value to the scientific community with innovations from their respective companies, Uku’hamba and Invisio AI.
 
Mongadi is an entrepreneur currently incubated at The Innovation Hubs’ eKasiLabs Soweto programme. eKasiLabs provides business development support to startups in various Gauteng townships.
