LexisNexis South Africa committed to advancing women in leadership
When women thrive, so too do their families, communities and even countries. It’s also a win for organisations, because having a more diverse and gender inclusive workforce can boost financial performance, reputation, innovation, and staff motivation. This is a belief supported by multiple studies and well understood by LexisNexis, where women continue to make positive gains thanks to an environment that creates equal opportunities for their job satisfaction, development and growth.

Videsha recently chatted to CEO MAGAZINE about business disruption, the complexity of leadership in a fast-paced world, millennials in the workplace, the value that LexisNexis seeks to add to business and how we’re striving to build a better Africa by advancing the Rule of Law.
