The Challenge of having higher B-BBEE level companies yet real transformation remains docile

Facilitated by: Thapelo Makotanyane

This panel will deal with the task of unearthing the underlying transformation that seemingly is not questioned by having higher BBBEE level credentials for companies. The higher BBBEE credentials need to reflect the true intention of transformation, and the facts provided by the panel should cause delegates to think anew around how companies are rated.
