The Sanlam Transformation Gauge is the only consolidated, sector-focused research report that takes a holistic measurement of economic transformation in South Africa, accounting for all elements of Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE).

Now twenty years since the Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment Act was introduced to address inequalities in South Africa, it is time to evaluate whether

B-BBEE has delivered the positive benefits it set out to achieve. Is the country positively transforming? Is it happening at pace, or being slowed down by a lack of commitment by corporate South Africa, corruption, and narrow self-interests?

Join Sanlam in partnership with the Sunday Times Business Times as they up the ante with the 2023 Sanlam Transformation Gauge Report that provides a three-year comparative view of progress and trends impacting economic transformation in South Africa.

Elias Masilela, Chairman of Sanlam will explore the evolution and impact of B-BBEE since its inception, critically examining its efficacy in addressing historical injustices and fostering economic transformation.

How transformation and economic inclusion reflects on a B-BBEE scorecard, versus how it plays out in the lives of real people, can often be very different. Join Gugulethu Mfuphi as she examines critical elements of the B-BBEE scorecard including Ownership, Management Control, Skills Development, Enterprise and Supplier Development, and Socio-Economic Development.

  • Mamkeli Jim – Dealmaker: Leveraged Finance, RMB
