Trailblazer Nerisha Singh is one of our rivetting speakers ..
Nerisha is one of South Africa’s leading forensics specialists.
She is an outspoken advocate on female empowerment and gender parity in the workplace.
In the face of overwhelming fear of what would happen to her personally, to her family and to her career-prospects if she spoke up, Nerisha blew the whistle on a culture of persistent harassment through her experiences of sexual harassment and victimisation in the workplace.
