SheSays, in collaboration with the Vega School of Brand Leadership and newly formed Cape Town agency HelloFCB, will host the Girls Gone Bad – Beating toxic colleagues and building your pack event, which will take place at the Vega campus in Cape Town on 23 May 2019.
For its fifth event panel, SheSays Cape Town has brought together a number of industry heavyweights, such as John Brown’s Group Managing and Executive Director, Lani Carstens, HelloFCB’s MD, Robyn Campbell and The Friday Street Club Owner and MD, Emma King. They will be joined by editor-activist Palesa Kgasane (formerly from Between10and5) and 3verse strategic director, Kay Orlandi.
SheSays chapter director Anelde Greeff said, ‘As always, we choose topics based on direct feedback from attendees who share their ideas in post-event surveys. The topic of toxic colleagues has been a constant, so we welcome the opportunity to unpack this with a hand-picked panel of women in what promises to be another thought-provoking and entertaining evening. Most of us will have to deal with toxic colleagues at some point in our careers, whether it’s a queen bee boss, backstabbing teammate or backchatting junior. The best way to deal with these ‘anti-mentors’ is for women to support women and to build your pack.’
‘Vega is a brand that supports a culture of learning to find your purpose. Diversity is incredibly important to us, which is why we’ve been following the SheSays Cape Town chapter with interest. It creates a much-needed forum for career issues and sharing ideas that could propel women’s careers. We are delighted to host this topical discussion at Vega,’ added Dr Carla Enslin, National Head of Strategy and New Business Development at Vega School of Brand leadership.
