IN celebration of women’s month, the Hollywoodbets Dolphins will host a Women in Sport and Business Brunch on 30 August at Kingsmead Cricket Stadium at 9am.
KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union’s marketing manager, Nana Ngubane said women in sports and business had, for many years, been side-lined.
“However in recent years, various sport federations have been gradually trying to right the wrongs of the past – in business as well, the world is now turning to female leaders for insight and counsel. Not to say that the injustices are now non-existent, however there is a visible shift that we have witnessed and would like to drive it forward in our capacity,” she said.

The Dolphins felt that it was time that they took a prominent position in driving these conversations of inequality between male and female sports and business people head on.
“The Hollywoodbets Dolphins have decided to take a stand through action. This event will be a first of its kind and we are hoping to level the ground and create a platform where everyone can speak without fear or favour,” Ngubane added.
The line-up for the day will be Margaret Hirsch, Jane Linley-Thomas, Nandi Dlepu and Dinesha Devanarain. They will speak on how they have been able to break barriers in their respective fields.
Registration is from 7.30am. Tickets are R420 or R4 200 for a table of 10. To book, email [email protected] or 031 335 4200.
