If you’re anything like me, you find Woman’s Day in South Africa a complex issue. On the one hand, it’s important to empower women; but on the other, the holiday intended to do this seems to have become an excuse for commercialism.
I’m proud to say that MIWA has fulfilled the true intent of this occasion with an edition that imparts critical knowledge for women drivers, giving them tips that help them rid themselves of that overwhelmed feeling when they enter a technician’s workshop. We’ve also included ideas on how to get the most out of your next visit to the filling station. Our East London Committee even hosted an event to help provide vital skills on basic car maintenance for women drivers.
This month’s newsletter also contains information about our latest skills development initiatives, as well as news on workshops that have undergone grading audits. You can look forward to getting to know more about the members of our Central Region Committee, too, and read up on the illustrious career of Robin Naidoo; an essential member of our team who bids us farewell as he takes up a well-deserved retirement.
Until next month, when we celebrate spring, we wish you happy reading.
MIWA National Director
