The Covid-19 crisis offers South Africans opportunities to tackle the unfinished agenda of transforming society into a more equitable, resilient and prosperous democracy that promotes the wellbeing of all people, according to academic and businesswoman Dr Mamphela Ramphele.
The cofounder of ReimagineSA was the opening speaker at the annual Trialogue Business in Society Conference on 13th October, where she discussed how corporates could play a leading role in strengthening socio-political and economic conditions.
Dr Ramphele spoke of great leadership in extraordinary times in world history: “Leaders who rise to the demands of extraordinary crisis tend to be those willing to take the risk to be creative, inventive and courageous.
“Such leaders succeed because they dare to break from the known to the unknown, from the familiar to the unfamiliar, from traditional to non-traditional ways, to open up new pathways to more promising futures.”
