A study conducted by global audit firm KPMG in 2014, found that sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) costs South Africa between R28.4bn and R42.4bn a year. It’s time for corporate South Africa to acknowledge that SGBV is not just a social risk... but a chronic political, market and financial risk that affects multiple industries, sectors and geographies. Join Gareth Cliff in conversation with Hermien Botes, Head of Sustainability Engagement for Anglo American; Andrew Davies, MD of ICAS, providing health and wellness programmes and counselling services to corporate South Africa; and Nadine Mather from law firm Bowmans, who will look at constructive steps that employers can take to address SGBV in the workplace.

It might be 'lights out' for those who have stolen from Eskom in the past. If you are going to murder people, please do it by yourself... we don't need that kind of guilt. Hippie crack can blow up a whole city, be careful.
