Eastern Cape Department of Transport (DoT) to host South African Network for Women in Transportation (SANWIT) consultative session in Cacadu District
20 Jul 2012
In an effort to revive and strengthen the South African Network for Women in Transportation (SANWIT), the Eastern Cape Department of Transport will host a SANWIT consultative session at Nangoza Jebe in Port Elizabeth, on 25 July 2012 at 10h00.
This session is a response to an announcement made by the provincial Transport MEC Thandiswa Marawu during her 2012/13 Policy Speech presentation at the Provincial Legislature earlier this year.
She pronounced that SANWIT would be enhanced through district summits, which will culminate in a provincial conference to be held in August 2012 to elect new leadership.
SANWIT is an association of women that seeks to provide a forum for the exploration of technical, policy, financial, and political aspects of emerging transportation issues in virtually every sector, while affording women outstanding networking opportunities and inside exposure in the country’s latest transportation mega projects.
It is a structure that supports the idea of strengthening the role of women in transport and is aimed at recruiting women or women groups as members and coordinate them into an umbrella body.
