Honouring Women’s Day is important to celebrate the impact women have in our society. Our success over time has been predicated by the valuable contribution and impact we have been able to make from all the women who are an integral part of our business.
At Viacom as a business we continue our focus of fully supporting and empowering our female talent as we march on to deliver our vision of a Re-imagined Africa.
In this month we also celebrate the diversity of talented women that are going to market to deliver valuable content across our brands from BET Africa’s Thembisa Mdoda’s Two Families and a Wedding Dress, Jo-Ann Reyneke’s Single Parent’s Looking for Love and the much anticipated biopic of South African legend Lebo Mathosa. This weekend Shekhinah’s RoseFest was held with MTV Base and BET featuring an entire female line-up together with Kim Jayde, Farieda and Nomalanga as MCs and today SuzelleDIY launchs Comedy Central’s Most Ridiculous on air.
We also launched a series of powerful brand campaigns that shine a spotlight on the achievements of innovative and pioneering South African women.
Join me in celebrating the richness of diversity and value that our women of VIMN Africa, South Africa and Africa bring every day in uplifting our communities and society in Africa and the world.
