PRESS RELEASE: INDUSTRY, LEADERS AND BUSINESS TAKE ON THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM, B-BBEE, ARE WE THERE YET?
On Wednesday 4th of October 2023, Kagiso Capital in collaboration with Kagiso Trust and the
FirstRand Empowerment Foundation will host a seminar on the efficacy of Broad-Based Black
Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) under the title theme “Beyond the Façade - The Bittersweet
Reality of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment”.
B-BBEE has been a pivotal policy instrument in addressing historical inequalities and transformation of black ownership and participation in the economy. The challenge is that discussion on its impact, progress, and potential improvement is a polarizing polarising issue - the seminar will provide a platform for open, data insights driven discussion on ownership, significant transactions to date and unpack the complexities of structuring policy aligned transactions in a dynamic ever shifting socio-economic environment.
The seminar will feature a dynamic line-up of speakers and panellists to mainstream discussions that often happen in isolation and to present a diverse range of views. Some of our speakers, including include Kgolo Qwelane (RMB), Duma Gqubule (Financial Analyst), Tshediso Matona (BEE Commissioner), Polo Leteka (Identity Fund Capital), Ernst van Zyl (Afriforum) and Kganki Matabane (CEO Black Business Council) as well as key stakeholders representing a broad spectrum of perspectives and expertise from:
