‘Men in the Making’ initiative

Sage Pastel participated in the ‘Men in the Making’ initiative  by hosting 10 matric learners from Minerva High School in Alexandra Township.

The aim of the initiative is to help raise responsible young men as well as to build and restore the confidence of male school learners in South Africa by developing their understanding of business in our country.

Career advice, mentorship, guidance and support were the order of the day, with the boys visiting various departments, exposing them to different career paths within the business. They were very enthusiastic and curious during all presentations and were highly motivated and inspired by Sage Pastel Accounting’s MD, Steven Cohen’s presentation – “Leadership Journey in Business”.

The boys described Sage Pastel as the “coolest” company, with some indicating they would like to be hired by the company in the near future.

We would like to thank Sage Pastel BEE123 for embracing the ‘Men in the Making’ initiative and the Human Resource and Marketing departments for their support.

The initiative is sponsored by Tracker and endorsed by the Department of Education.
