Established 19 years ago at the request of President Cyril Ramaphosa, Impumelelo was the first directory of top black-owned and managed companies in South Africa. Since then, the Top Empowerment brand has grown into one of the country’s most well-respected transformation platforms.
In the past two years the words ‘recovery’ and ‘transformation’ have begun to take on greater significance in South Africa. As we seek to claw back the gains wiped away by the pandemic, we are still working towards opening up the economy to all. Empowerment is what brings those words together. The goal is not only to take us back to where we were, but to go even further.
Inside the latest edition of Top Empowerment you will find interviews and links to podcasts with inspiring individuals who are touching the lives of others through their roles as entrepreneurs and business leaders.
Among the articles you will find are an overview of B-BBEE’s journey over the last 18 years, as well as advice on how to improve your rating. We also take a look at companies who are at the forefront of enterprise supplier development and celebrate the companies developing diverse and inclusive organisations.
