The world is run by WOMEN. Strong, brave, courageous, witty, kick-ass women. The City of Roses boasts some of the toughest, most compassionate and most inspiring female leaders you’ll ever come across. This month, Get It celebrates these leaders and their superpowers. Because, let’s face it, we’re not just businesswomen. We are mothers, daughters, caretakers, wives, cooks, cleaners, teachers and motivators. We are invested in our communities, and care for those who need a mother’s love. We look at the future while tending to the present with grace and attention to detail. We do it all, with added vava-VOOM for those extra curve balls life throws at us.
In this year’s Get It Women on the Move feature, Vodacom is at the forefront, celebrating this team of strong women with us. Visit www.vodacom.co.za for details on all it has on offer.
Meet Pinky Lebitso
Pinky Lebitso is making her mark in the workplace. Her passion for her job is contagious, and she lives her life with joy and commitment. She is the public affairs and communications manager at Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa looking after Inland region.
“My job entails building and maintaining good relationships, reputation and advocacy for CCBSA Inland Region among communities, government and stakeholders.” She also ensures that the employees are engaged and informed of important business imperatives
and performance through internal communication.
Building a career at Coca-Cola was a no-brainer for Pinky. “I work for one of the best companies in the world. Our brands bring families, friends and strangers together. We bring happiness through the work we do in the communities we operate in. I have an opportunity to make a difference in someone`s life in ways that I would not have been able to if I was doing this in my own personal capacity.”
What brings even more joy to her job, is being in the position to help and support young people that come to Coca-Cola for assistance with their businesses or funds to pay for their studies.
Pinky is exceptionally good at connecting with people from all walks of life. “Also, being flexible in difficult situations. And lastly, showing up!! Regardless of what I am going through, I wake up and show up!”
Outside the office, Pinky is a wife, mother of two beautiful children (boy and girl), daughter, sister and friend. The biggest lesson taught to Pinky by her parents is to make full use of every opportunity she received and lastly, to always stay humble.
