Critical reflections on privilege and complicity in South Africa.
Employment equity legislation: A review of progress between 1999 and 2020.
Gender identity and transformation in South Africa: Past, present and future.
Gender inequality at work.
Responding to gender-based violence in South Africa: Lessons from higher education.

Inclusive solutions to mental health challenges: Creative resistance from the margins.

12 Lenses into Diversity in South Africa calls for responsible inclusion from all – individually and organisationally, by ordinary citizens as well as those in positions of power.
