For the longest time, non-traditional or male-dominated occupations have always contained fewer women in total employment. However, in recent times, we have seen a shift in this dynamic as more women are now entering male-dominated fields.

This week on The Business Buzz, we look at young successful women in male-dominated industries.

We speak to a young female engineer, Yankho Banda, who unpacks her journey, her experiences as well as the challenges of being a female in the field of engineering.

“In our Business Wrap”, Financial Advisor Ken Swettenham gives us a recap of this week’s Business, Finance and Economic news.

We kick start the show’s women’s month campaign “The Mentorship Match-Up” – a campaign aimed at matching young female mentees to mentors who are pioneering in various fields and industries.

To end off the show, radio content producer Elna tells us what she loves and hates about her job “in our Rant’ n Rave”.
