UCT academic wins award for commitment to education

01 October 2012

Associate Professor Annemarie Hattingh of UCT's School of Education is one of the Most Influential Woman in Business and Government (MIW) in South Africa.

This, at least, is according to CEO Magazine, in which she was profiled after winning in the education and training category.

Hattingh has been involved in education for the past 24 years, and her passion is for more women to complete doctoral studies. Thus for the past 10 years she has been involved in a project that assists and encourages women to enter PhD programmes by creating a "community of practice".

Hattingh has also agreed to be part of a mentoring programme, run in partnership with the National Youth Development Agency.

"These awards are a way of identifying female mentors as much as it is about acknowledging inspirational women," she says.
