Margaret Hirsch, COO of the Hirsch Group, recently travelled to Mumbai, India, to receive a prestigious award as one of the 50 Most Impactful Social Innovators (Globally) at the WORLD CSR (Sustainable development) CONGRESS 2018. The 50 Most Impactful Social Innovators (Global Listing) is an intensely researched process undertaken by the research cell which consists of Post Graduates in History & Management. It is the job of the research cell to produce a shortlist of Individuals who are doing extraordinary work and track the record of their achievements. The shortlist is then reviewed by a Jury comprising of senior professionals from across the globe.
Commented Margaret on receiving her award “I am extremely honoured to receive this award. South Africa is a land rich in opportunity, and my journey in business, and working in the communities in which we operate has been exhilarating – and humbling at the same time. Being able to help empower, motivate and encourage women in the community, and show them that whatever I can do, they can do with effort, hard work and passion – is the greatest gift.”
