Old Mutual Namibia announced its sponsorship of N$100 000 towards the Diversity Conference scheduled for the 11 to 12 February. The event will see the gathering of the most influential leaders from private, public and the civic sectors, discussing trends and challenges that relate to diversity and inclusivity in society as a whole.

Kosmas Egumbo, Group Chief Executive Officer of Old Mutual Namibia said that sponsoring an event of this nature provides an opportunity for real conversations on the challenges the market faces in delivering to national objectives.
“A conference of this nature creates a platform for senior leaders to work together on boarding practical tools that could assist us in our shared vision for Namibia,” he said.
“Creating a shift of mind and developing Namibia as a country is our collective responsibility and taking up an opportunity to transform through harnessing the diversity of our national and corporate work force is a welcome call that Old Mutual is keen to embrace and deliver on,” he added.
Dr Fons Trompenaars, Conference Facilitator,is an Organisational Theorist, Management Consultant and author of several books on cross cultural management and will provide participants with essential tools on how to increase the capabilities of individuals within organisations, to be more creative and innovative, dealing with dilemmas that are created by cultural diversity such as gender, race, ethnic groups and different cultural practices. By sponsoring this even Old Mutual will be contributing towards the national debate on what Namibia would look like if the nation can manage to leverage diversity and the essential ingredients needed in order for this to take place.
