Black Management Forum Student Chapter Statement on 8% Fees Increment  for 2017

The Black Management Forum Student Chapter is disappointed at the level of incomprehension shown by the Minister of Higher Education and the South African Government on the announcement made of up to 8% fee increment for 2017.

BMF Annual Conference Press Statement

THE BLACK MANAGEMENT FORUM ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2016
Johannesburg, 16 September 2016

The Black Management Forum (BMF) is hosting their Annual Conference on Wednesday 5 October and Thursday 6 October. The Annual Conference brings together a number of senior managers, executives and business leaders from all provinces to meet and discuss, under a specific theme, current issues affecting the socio-economic transformation landscape and the development of South Africa. These issues are critical, pertinent, provocative and require intense interrogation by managers and leaders today. The conference aims to engage government, civil society and business leaders to finding solutions to these issues.

The 2016 Conference theme is: Making Transformation a Business Imperative. Transformation has been neglected and is in reverse gear. Business and other institutions have been subscribing to minimalist approaches as far as the implementation of transformation is concerned. It is evident that self-regulation in matters of transformation have clearly failed. However, transformation is the very instrument that we have leveraged as South African society to achieve the critical mass of the black middle class, to normalise our society, and to unlock opportunities for marginalised people and enterprises to thrive in our post-apartheid society. Transformation is good for business and it is fundamental for the de-racialisation of our economy and ensuring dividends of liberation and democracy to our broader society.
