2019 IPM Business Leader of the Year
Professor Keolebogile Shirley Motaung
Professor Motaung is a Biomedical scientist and the assistant dean in charge of Postgraduate Studies, Research, Innovation and Engagement at the Tshwane University of Technology. Her passions include turning research ideas into viable businesses and mentoring young black females by delegating to and trusting them in her business Global Health Biotech. Her focus on uplifting previously disadvantaged young black females isn’t, however, constrained to her own business ventures and she focusses on teaching entrepreneurial skills, equipping her students to compete in a market where jobs can be scarce. Professor Motaung, in collaboration with other universities, has both hosted and taken young talent to international conferences in the scientific field. The result of these ventures has been international collaboration and the upliftment of many young ladies. Professor Motaung continuously tells the girls “always have a dream” and we have no doubt that her journey of enriching young talent in our country is far from done.
