Professor Habib is a popular and respected political commentator, frequently called upon to provide expert opinion on television, radio and in the print media. In a recent Business Day article Habib stated: Only a serious agenda of tackling inequality and poverty is likely to establish the possibilities for a social pact and recreate the circumstances for stable and sustainable economic growth. He further challenges: ...do we have the collective political will to truly address our extreme inequality?
During this seminar Professor Habib will share his views on potential solutions to South Africa's apparently intractable poverty and inequality, and suggest ways in which philanthropy and corporate social investment could be re-strategised to practically address prevailing inequities.
There will be opportunity to network with friends and colleagues over refreshments before the seminar begins
