Goldman Sachs launched the 10,000 Women programme in March 2008. It is a $100 million, five-year campaign to foster greater shared economic growth by providing 10,000 underserved women around the world with a business and management education. The programme is founded on research conducted by Goldman Sachs, the World Bank, and others which suggests that this kind of investment can have a significant impact on GDP growth. Research also suggests that such an investment in women can have a significant multiplier effect that leads not only to increased revenues and more employees for businesses, but also healthier, better-educated families, and ultimately more prosperous communities. 10,000 Women is coordinated in local markets by a network of more than 80 academic and NGO partners. More than thirty of the world’s leading business schools are participating in 10,000 Women, including seven of the top ten.
In South Africa, 10,000 Women is managed and delivered by the Gordon Institute of Business Science. By the end of 2013, the school will provide 300 underserved female entrepreneurs with a business and management training delivered by leading faculty and industry specialists. This will be supported by mentorship, networking events, community dialogues and business advisory that will enable the women to grow their businesses.
Applications are now open for the first cohort of fifty women who will begin the programme in March 2012. Classroom sessions will take place at the GIBS Inner City Campus.

We have been building up the Alumni Wiki the last few months. So we thought we should actually have a proper introduction to it. We wish for the Wiki to be a section where alumni can collaborate in information gathering and sharing. For example, we have a number of alumni who send out a lot of bursary and scholarship information. We try to collect all of this information and put it 1 place. In the past we used to put this information on the Learner Page, now we are moving it to the Wiki so that it can easily be updated and changed if need be. Alumni will still be able to send the emails and the Directory Team as well as other Alumni will be able to update the Wiki pages easily. We aim to add another dimension to all the work we and the Alumni Society has done in allowing online collaboration and also encouraging alumni to communicate with each other across generations and location.

Tsogo Alumni 4th Annual Careers & Study Expo
Thursday 25th March 2010
Report By Thabo Ncalo
The first quarter in 2010 has been a productive one for the alumni society. We’re glad to report that our 4th Annual Expo was a great success! This year we managed to host 7 academic institutions and 12 companies / organisations and exposed all Tsogo Grade 9 to 12 learners (approximately 400 learners) to a range of careers and study fields.
In true Tsogo tradition the event opened with some melodic singing and prayer at assembly followed by a welcome address from Mr. Assi (school principal) . He welcomed all guests and alumni – and especially Mr. Thema who is the Circuit Manager (Bojanala Region) in the Department of Education.
The welcome address was followed by a brief address by Mr. Thabo Ncalo (Alumni society secretary) who spoke about the role of alumni at Tsogo and the importance of instilling a culture of giving-back. He urged the learners to “be inquisitive” and ask many questions as possible – both on the day and generally in life.
