The idea of a support structure by women for women was born in April 2020, during stage five of the lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Humans need support during times of forced change, which is accompanied by uncertainty, anxiety and often high levels of stress. Rinet Griessel, leader of In SA for Inclusivity, could foresee how relationships would be challenged during this time and that the need for strong support networks would become vital. While we all knew how to leave our homes and spend long hours away at work every day, we had to learn how to stay at home for long hours and rely on our own resources and initiative to integrate all aspects of our lives in one space.
Women of Wisdom – a Mentoring Well (WOW) was birthed with the purpose to offer working and businesswomen access to top mentors to support, guide and assist them with professional growth and transformation to reach their full potential.
