Dr Ntombenhle Sambo spoke about depression and encouraged women to get help if they suffer depression.

About 300 women from Sasol Mining celebrated Women’s Day at Graceland Casino on 9 August.
Sasol Mining’s Women in Mining (WIM) Forum, organised the event.
Sasol Mining established the forum as a strategic initiative to advance diversity, inclusion and enhance women’s lives in a historically male-dominated industry.
The WIM forum has been commemorating this significant day since its launch in 2015.
The theme for this year’s celebration, ‘Aspire to Inspire’, was unpacked by various speakers who shared their life stories in the spheres of careers, relationships in the workplace, work-life balance and health.
These included Hope Dire from Women in Mining South Africa (WIMSA), Sectional Pastor Sondlile Nkwanyana, from the Methodist Church, Nicolette Prinsloo, a representative of Sasol Mining Women in Mining Forum, Sisiwe Mthethwa from Aveng Mining, cancer survivor Sheila Dhullab and Margaret Skosana, Municipal Manager: Nkangala District.
“The Women in Mining Forum aims to empower women to uplift themselves and others to positively influence their surroundings,” said Portia Malele from the forum.
Vice President, Human Resource at Sasol Mining, Ben Matai, said the forum’s theme was an appropriate one as it challenges the women to become the best they could be to make an impact in people’s lives.
Dr Ntombenhle Sambo spoke about challenges women face and the signs and symptoms of depression.
