In recent years, there has a been an increasing focus on the concept of social justice. The frustration towards gender and racial discrimination, xenophobia, and economic disparities are becoming increasingly more apparent both in South Africa and globally, calling on governments and businesses to focus on providing equal social, political, and economic opportunities and rights. The call for social justice is a call to redress the wrongs of the past, and the imbalance of opportunities that has been caused by those wrongs.
While Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) is a vital step towards social justice in South Africa, it is important to recognise that B-BBEE encompasses so much more. At The LLC Academy, a 73.57% Black Owned Level 2 Designated Group Supplier that is Services Seta, QCTO and COMENSA accredited, we are dedicated to what B-BBEE can do to help our students learn, believe, and succeed.
While B-BBEE addresses recourse on a larger scale, our programmes allow students to learn valuable skills which they can implement not only in their work environment, but in their communities at large. We do our utmost to encourage them to believe in themselves and their personal power to achieve and make an impact. Ultimately, we strive to help our students succeed in their chosen fields of study, through our ongoing support, coaching and development programmes.
At The LLC Academy, we recognise that personal development, lifelong learning, and a commitment to developing both current and future leaders of South Africa is not just a step in the right direction towards achieving social justice, but it is an investment in individuals. Developing leaders from grassroots to C-Suite has a knock-on effect on businesses, communities, and South Africa as a whole. A well-educated, skilled population of individuals, who have been uplifted and granted opportunities by a community that recognises their value, is a group of individuals committed to building a better future for all.
At The LLC Academy we consider B-BBEE to be so much more than just social justice. B-BBEE is an investment, one that pays off immediately in the creation of a diverse, skilled workforce that is determined to develop and grow themselves, your business and our country along with them. We believe that B-BBEE done right is a hand up not a handout – your employees become more capable, better leaders who are better-able to engage with the economy. It is also a long-term investment, which builds a South Africa that is economically inclusive and a powerhouse able to compete on the global stage.
Learn. Believe. Succeed. These are the personal tenets of The LLC Academy, and ones that we implement on a daily basis across all our programmes.
