2015 PCB CALENDARS
TechWomen, one of the State Department’s signature public diplomacy programs, was designed to support development in the field of technology in participating countries and to enable women to reach their full potential in the technology industry through five-week mentorships with American women at leading innovation companies and organizations in the United States. The program was inaugurated by former Secretary Clinton in 2011, and we’ve been fortunate to have between 4 – 7 South African women participate in each year of the program.
Ideal participants in this program will be female emerging leaders and entrepreneurs working in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), with at least a few years of work experience in their field after completing school. We are especially excited to see applications from women from underserved communities who have demonstrated a commitment to mentoring or giving back to others.
The TechWomen program has a unique online application process. The TechWomen website can be found at: www.techwomen.org , and interested applicants should be able to go to that website to find more information and the application starting on Monday December 15. The application process will be open for two months. Finalists will be matched with mentors in the U.S., and will travel to the U.S. for about five weeks in late September/October 2015.
The PCB is to publish its very own quarterly glossy business magazine.
Capital will promote the greater Pietermaritzburg and KwaZulu-Natal Midlands area through a focus on enterprise. People, and the myriad ways in which they make money and succeed, are what drive an economy and shape the future. Their stories - often inspiring and frequently surprising - are the stories that Capital will tell.
Capital will speak to both a local audience and to a wider national and international readership. It will achieve this through the focused distribution of a quarterly, A4-sized glossy magazine enhanced by a multimedia edition that drives reader interaction beyond what is possible with print. Complete with video, audio, photo galleries, research polls and clickable adverts, this innovative digital version, along with the print issue, will be distributed far and wide via other chambers of business, government departments, consulates, airports and subscriptions.
Should you wish to be part of this publication please contact: Heidi Jadoo on 033 345 2747 or email@example.com. The booking form is attached and adverts will be accommodated on a first come, first serve basis.
This sneak peek of the interactive, digital magazine is to show you what we are doing with Capital magazine.
The Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Business (PCB) was constituted in August 2002 following unity negotiations among three former business organisations – the Pietermaritzburgse Sakekamer, the Midlands Black Business Chamber and the Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Commerce and Industries. In forming a new chamber of commerce and industry, the unifying bodies agreed to forego their independent identities. Following the unification, the PCB was afforded the recognition of the local and provincial governments as the representative of the business community in Pietermaritzburg.
