Boss Babes Of South Africa (BBSA) – Breaking Barriers, being Trail blazers and change makers.
A call for authentic, multifaceted women to become BBSA Ambassadors.
We are often called upon to impact the world in a greater, more purposeful manner than we could have ever imagined, especially during extraordinary life-changing times.
Early in 2020, Kovini Moodley; feminist, philanthropist, Chartered Accountant and Diversity Advocate, experienced the direct and unfortunate impact that occurs when women tear each other down in the name of jealousy, insecurity and unnecessary competition. After reflection and a need to effect change in a positive, candid manner, Boss Babes of South Africa was born.
BBSA is the perfect story of turning pain into power and power into inspiration from their already more than 20 000 strong sisterhood, a support base that is growing daily.
Kovini grew up in a little town south of Durban in KZN and as a young change maker had always felt a deep desire to impact and contribute to causes larger than herself.
Her career trajectory spans across working for many large listed corporate organisations and driving change across industries by utilising her vast global skillsets for organisational optimisation.
As a truth seeker by nature, integrity and moral fibre have been non-negotiable elements in life and the very core of her soul. The establishment of Boss Babes of South Africa was a natural progression for her.
BBSA is a Sandton based, all female run digital empowerment platform, passionate about uplifting and empowering South African women through powerful content across their various digital platforms.
They celebrate powerful, authentic and multifaceted women and embrace diversity, inclusion and the notion that women can excel at anything that they choose to put their minds to.
Their community is filled with brilliant minds (doctors, lawyers, pilots, entrepreneurs, philanthropists and a host of specialists across a host of diverse industries) who are committed and obsessed with empowering and inspiring other women.
They do this through:
- Inspirational, relatable and candid content.
- Marketing of new qualified graduates in the media space
- Skill sharing initiatives
Why was Boss Babes founded ?
Moodley explains; “I have survived numerous, toxic, disempowering episodes of discrimination, bullying and misogynoir which lead me to reflect and create this platform, a platform where all voices can be heard and where personal pain and stories of resilience, can be leveraged to inspire other women.”
She continues; “There is immense bravery in speaking out and speaking your truth in a way that creates awareness and power. Women, especially women of colour, need to be reminded of their self-worth and not be diminished by the worthless opinions of others. Women of colour face numerous challenges and barriers such as micro-agressions and tone policing on a daily basis and the time has come to break the stereotypes and dismantle the preconceived notions that support these systems.”
In a world that needs inspiration, Boss Babes of South Africa is the lighthouse that never dims. Their relatable, candid and motivational content stems from life experience of their founder as well as brave stories from their amazing supporter base. Breaking Barriers, dispelling societal norms and stereotypes are key to the brands, uniquely relatable content`, positioning it in a fresh and creative way.
For Boss Babes the motto is simply – Be Authentic, always.
At Boss Babes everyone has a seat at the table, they focus on creating a longer table!
Kovini concludes; “We need to be encouraged to take back our power, voices and minds and ensure that the environments that we form part of support our value, uniqueness and diversity. Speaking up empowers others to also live from a place that supports their authentic true selves.”
