With women representing more than 60% of our teams, managers and senior managers, at bOnline, we’re committed to celebrating women each day. Our team is breaking the bias in unique ways and embracing the power, zeal and passion of women all around the world.

The women leaders at bOnline are brilliant, strong and inspiring. They really spread their power around! bOnline is a company full of strong female leaders. They deserve mention every day because not only do these ladies lead by example but also help make changes within our organisation to empower and uplift others. 


Shireen Dirk, Head of Sales:

“I'm proud to lead our sales team to achieve growth and sales targets. I believe that we have a Wonder Woman inside all of us”


Kathryn Edwards, CFO:

“I am extremely privileged to have been a part of the bOnline journey over the past 3 years. A big thank you to my Senior Management team who have always supported women in leadership positions, and from whom I continually learn and grow. In the words of Michelle Obama "There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish".


Monique Dicks, Human Resource Manager

“Serena Williams once said “Every woman's success should be an inspiration to another. We are STRONGEST when we cheer each other on”

I started with the bOnline family 6 months ago and have the honour of working with an exceptional Management team. As the HR Manager, it is a privilege to be in a position where I can support the women at bOnline to become significant and witness them succeed. Being part of the management team, I have truly witnessed how strong these women are and the support that we give each other. We learn from each other every day and we cheer each other on. What a privilege it is to work with such an amazing and inspiring woman.”


Juliet Govender, Head of Operations

“It's such an honour to be a part of a business that seeks and values women's advancement. At bOnline, 50% of our Senior Management Team are women, versus the 20.3% worldwide average (2022 Forbes stats). We continue to commit ourselves to supporting diversity and remain strong advocates for every employee and customer's business' success. To everyone who is celebrating International Women's day, may you discover your unique strength to achieve your hopes and dreams, and uncover victory upon victory.”


Jade Solomon, Broadband Telecoms Manager

“Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence

- Sherly Sandberg

Even though my title is “Broadband Manager”, I’ve been with bOnline for 6 years and was afforded the opportunity to assist with grooming various teams, this knowledge now allows me to support team leaders in building strong relationships with customers, their teams, and management for further support.”


Shweta Raina, Content Writer & Creator:

“Someone rightly said, “Don’t stop until you’re proud.”

I completely resonate with this quote as I’m a part of an organisation that helps me achieve my professional goals and also pushes me to grow to the best of my ability.

I’m proud to be working for a company that has no bias towards any gender.”
