    Ep 17: It’s a men’s issue

    Ep 17: It’s a men’s issue

    What are men’s voices doing on a show for women who want to thrive at work? What they should have been doing a long time ago: taking a stand against toxic masculinity and doing their part to eradicate gender-based violence.

    So say the collective voices on our show today.

    Gender-based violence has so many facets and one episode is not adequate enough to cover it. But the men on this episode agree about one thing: it’s a men’s issue more than anything else.

    In episode 17 of Hungry Woman at Work, Nevelia Moloi speaks to Jaco van Schalkwyk, founder of The Character Company, Beverly Gumede of Lawyers against Abuse, and a few other men who are saying “GBV stops with me”.

    Ep 16: How to build an online business - feat. Genecia Alluora

    Starting an online business, or moving your brand from offline to online can be intimidating for anyone. It’s even more intimidating for the woman who is somewhat technophobic, or feels like she doesn’t have enough time to figure out this online thing.

    Genecia Alluora, founder of Soul Rich Woman - the biggest network of female entrepreneurs in South-East Asia, is all about helping women entrepreneurs “shortcut their success” through building an online business. In addition to some very practical, technical tips for building your brand digitally, she also shares her insights on some of the limiting mindsets and beliefs we first need to overcome as women.

    The story of this former Miss Singapore starts from humble beginnings, and is testament to her belief that as women, “alone we are strong, together we are unstoppable”.

    Ep 15: Disrupting through innovation - meet the founders of Instaglam Express

    “In the midst of doing hair we realised the whole world is changing all around us but the beauty industry is not changing - what is happening?”

    Doing things differently or, not doing things the way they’ve always been done, is not always encouraged. In this episode Nevelia Moloi speaks to two women who have experienced first-hand that innovation is not always celebrated.

    Natasha Summers and Chris Fisher are co-owners of Share Hair salon. Over the years they’d become so successful at their hairdressing craft, they had clients on waiting lists!

    But one day they realised the world around them was changing, but their industry was not. And so they set out to do something which at the time was unthinkable: to introduce technology into a techno-scared industry.

    As founders of Instaglam Express, an app for the hair and beauty industry, they share their insights on how to step out of your comfort zone and disrupt through innovation.

    Ep 14: “Make every season count” – Rumbidzai Chisenga

    Ep 14: “Make every season count” – Rumbidzai Chisenga

    What season of life do you currently find yourself in: an exuberant summer, an uncertain autumn or an overwhelming winter? More importantly, how are you responding to the season? Are you trying to make the most of every moment or are you desperately wanting to go into hibernation and hope it passes soon?

    In episode 14, Nevelia Moloi chats to Rumbidzai Chisenga, a consultant in the international development space whose work revolves around strengthening governance institutions.

    Rumbidzai shares why it’s important to understand the season you’re in and adjust yourself accordingly. “The most important thing about seasons might just be about contentment. I am here, I’m not always gonna be here, but I’ve got to make this season count,” she says.

    She also offers her take on how to make your introverted nature work to your advantage in a loud and contested workplace.

    Ep 13: The Confidence Gap at Work

    Ep 13: The Confidence Gap at Work

    There’s been a lot of talk around women and the confidence gap at work. One school of thought says women get overlooked for promotions because “they’re not confident enough”.

    But others say that, what shows up as a lack of confidence is really a mix of different reasons. Some of those include a fear of backlash, being taught that others – not yourself – should praise your work, and generational gender norms of how women should present themselves (i.e. sweetly and quietly!)

    Host Nevelia Moloi, Mwansa Chokolo, an actuary working in the insurance industry, and Khodani Nematei, a youth development manager chat about women and the confidence gap at work.

    Ep 12: "There's always a way to work towards your dreams" - Erica Blocker

    As children we are encouraged to keep on dreaming, to pursue our dreams … and then as adults we’re told to stopped dreaming, to “grow up” in fact.

    On this episode Nevelia Moloi interviews Erica Blocker, our first guest beyond SA borders, who says dreams are crucial to our wellbeing and urges us to keep on dreaming. Erica is a life coach and side business success strategist. She’s also the Founder of Moms with Dreams University, so there’s a special message for moms who feel their dreams have gone to early retirement.

    Erica also offers advice on how you can maximise your time, how to find your confidence, and move from simply thinking about something, to implementing it.

    If you’ve become disillusioned about pursuing your dreams, this is a must-listen episode.
