When women support women the result is mind blowing.
Puleng Poe started Lina Sarah Team, a specialist Recruitment & HR Solutions business, for female engineers in Africa. The company uses appropriate strategies and policies that motivate and retain critical and scarce skills female engineers need to get jobs, retain their jobs and attain success.
Apart from existing engineers, the Lina Sarah Team is building a platform that encourages young girls to join industries that are male dominated. This way they are re-writing the story of Africa, because in a few years to come when more women are in industries like engineering, the team will be part of that story.
In her own words, “African women have a story to tell and therefore we need to give them a platform to showcase their talent, capability and to give them a voice.”
Puleng hopes that she can develop an interactive career networking platform for Women Engineers in Africa in the nearest future where they can find mentors, career development opportunities and many more.
By doing this she knows she will be able to help female engineers step into leadership roles.
Well done Puleng!
