On Thursday 8 August 2019, the HWSETA joined the rest of the county to celebrate National Women’s Month. The significance of Women’s month in the country is dedicated to the commemoration of the iconic 1956 Women’s March which saw 20 000 women march to the Union Buildings to protest against unfair pass laws. Today the march has been celebrated on 9 August each year since 1995 to recognize the important role played by women during the struggle for liberation against colonisation and apartheid.
The HWSETA celebrated this day with a raffle competition where female staff were bought chocolates that were pinned with a raffle number that automatically entered them into the draw. There were three prizes up for grabs where the two runner-ups won an HWSETA goodie bag and the grand prize-winner a Sorbet voucher worth R500.
The HWSETA’s Chief Executive Officer, Elaine Brass oversaw the draw and randomly drew the three winning numbers. Reena Takoorpersadh, PA to the CEO took home the grand prize and Sanelisiwe Nyathi, Financial Administrator, and Vuyelwa Mpumza, Projects Officer, were the two runner-ups.
The HWSETA thanks all HWSETA women for their massive contribution and dedication to the organisation. They work tirelessly to impress at work and still give themselves at home.
We honour and salute you!
