Prof Stella Nkomo receives ILA Lifetime Achievement Award
23 October 2017
The International Leadership Association (ILA) bestowed the ILA Lifetime Achievement Award on Prof Stella Nkomo during the Association's annual global conference, which took place in Brussels from 12 to 15 October 2017.
Prof Nkomo, who is also the President of the Africa Academy of Management, has made significant contributions in the areas of leadership and change, diversified workforces, and women and leadership. She has authored several books and articles, with some of her most notable publications being Our Separate Ways: Black and White Women and the Struggle for Professional Identity and Courageous Conversations: A Collection of Interviews and Reflections on Responsible Leadership by South African Captains of Industry.
'There is no better way to celebrate the growing profession of leadership and of ILA — the global network for all those who practice, study, and teach leadership — than by honouring those individuals who were instrumental in the creation of the discipline of leadership and who contributed to the field's development and enhancement over the course of their lifetime,' remarked Cynthia Cherrey, President and CEO of the ILA.
Prof Elsabé Loots, Dean of Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences, congratulated Prof Nkomo on behalf of the entire Faculty, noting that she was a well-deserving recipient.
