While the number of women working in the South African financial industry has increased over the last twenty years, it has now largely stagnated. In part, this can be attributed to a range of misconceptions that prevent young women from feeling as though they have a place within the sector.


This Women’s Month, we sat down with Jessica Hawkey, Founder and Managing Director of redAcademy to discuss her journey as a Woman in business, what her advice is for fellow females in business and why she has a passion for empowering South Africa’s youth.
