The IWF community mourns the passing of IWF South Africa member Dr Vuyokazi Mahlati, a champion for equality, an entrepreneur, mentor and inspiration to many.
Dr Vuyo Mahlati was passionate about women’s issues and leadership development. IWF South Africa was founded 19 years ago when its patron, Mrs Zanele Mbeki, together with a group of women leaders, set up a South African chapter of the IWF. Vuyo was determined to work with her forum sisters to make it a success, remaining true to the forum’s mission throughout her life. She was an inspiring and unifying force, and her impact on the forum will be felt for years to come.
