M&D has been in partnership with Uweso Consulting, an innovative job-shadowing programme that seeks to increase the participation of girls and young women in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) since 2015 and have seen great value in it for the students. Annually we are paired with a group of girls from Diepsloot High School, and every school holidays we host these students for a week at our Head office as well as on sites. The aim is to expose them to all our Company divisions by pairing them with mentors in order to obtain some in-depth exposure to various careers available within our environment. We also ensure that the girls are taught about the job market, cv writing, presenting skills and researching skills.
Our office employees as well as the different sites look forward to hosting these girls on a quarterly basis.
