Starlite Aviation is delighted to announce two finalists in the prestigious “South Africa’s Most Influential Women in Business and Government” Competition.
Kate Odendaal, Managing Director and Chief Flying Instructor of Starlite Africa Training and Captain Laura Ilunga, Director of Operations & HR of SAWIA and Starlite contracting pilot, have both been selected as finalists.
South Africa’s Most Influential Women in Business and Government was launched with a view to providing organisations with a platform from which to celebrate their achievements in terms of gender equality, as well as to pay tribute to those women who were consistently making their mark in their organisations, and indeed the country, for their outstanding accomplishments.
In congratulating Kate and Laura on their achievements Bonita Brown, of CEO Communications commented that “Your achievements thus far – the meaningful contribution you have made in your industry and the positive impact this has had on our country – makes us proud to be associated with you.”
The South Africa’s Most Influential Women in Business and Government Awards recognise the contribution of women across a range of sectors and is a credible identifier of women in business and government who are willing to put their influence to work for the benefit of our economy.
The next step for Kate and Laura is a video conference interview. This will be judged through a stringent three-phase process and is conducted by an independent group of industry leaders.
The winners of the various categories will be announced at a gala evening in Johannesburg on 30th July 2013. All at Starlite Aviation would like to wish the best of luck to Kate and Laura.
