Women on the Move: Meet Prof. Brownhilder Neneh

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 Prof. Brownhilder Neneh

As the Associate Professor and Academic Chair (HOD) at the department of Business Management of the UFS, Prof. Brownhilder never experiences a dull day in her life. Living out her passion within the world of academics and business, her responsibilities at the department are twofold: “The first is my academic responsibilities which focus on teaching, postgraduate student supervision, and research. The second is my leadership and administrative responsibilities.”

She provides leadership towards attaining the highest possible level of quality in the  teaching and research activities of the department and influencing the department’s overall climate and culture. She’s also responsible for budget planning, determining expenditure priorities, skills development management and the general day to day running of the department.

She does all this gracefully, while filling her role as mother and wife when she’s at home. “I have a beautiful daughter, Zina Beri. I’m also a Sunday school teacher, friend and confidant.”

Prof. Brownhilder enjoys the fact that she can make a big difference in the lives of  students, helping to find solutions to real-world problems through research. “I put more than 100% into everything I do. I believe that as an Academic Chair, I must lead by example. As such, I continuously strive for excellence in teaching and research.”

The lessons her parents taught her have contributed to the high levels of success that she has achieved in her career thus far. “They’ve taught me to always remember to pray, be truthful, be consistent in whatever I do, and that family is important. I will never forget my roots.”
