Maki Mandela

Add To Speakers List

The daughter of Nelson Mandela, one of the world’s most famous figures and equality activists, Maki Mandela continues to follow in her great father’s footsteps. A businesswoman, activist and one of the industry’s most highly sought-after diversity and inclusion speakers, Maki’s remarkable life story always makes for a fascinating event.

Born in Johannesburg to Nelson Mandela and his first wife Evelyn Mase, Pumla Makaziwe Mandela-Amuah grew up in one of South Africa’s most famous families. After seeing the wonderful impact her father had on the world, she was determined to make a difference herself. She studied in South Africa, Swaziland and the USA, gaining an education that stood her in good stead for her future career.

Maki’s extremely diverse and varied career had seen her hold directorships at major companies around the world. This includes Nestle SA, as well as institutions like the Development Bank of Southern Africa and Spoornet.

One of Maki’s passions has always been equality and women empowerment. To this end, she’s authored a number of academic papers on women in South Africa and also worked closely with Nozala, an organisation that champions women in business and uses funds to uplift women throughout the nation. As one of the most popular diversity and inclusion speakers in the industry, at all of her events, Maki will discuss these issues explaining the progress she’s seen while also outlining what needs to be done to truly achieve equality.

In 2017, she became the director of the newly founded House of Mandela family foundation. In this role, she aims to raise awareness and funds for a number of issues affecting African communities. This includes HIV and AIDS, education, health, agriculture, women empowerment and promoting alternate energy sectors.

Always upholding the ideals of her father, Maki Mandela is the perfect diversity and inclusion speaker for all corporate or personal occasions. If you’re looking for a speaker to truly take the breath away from your audiences and leave a lasting impression, Maki is the speaker for you. Able to cover topics including Black Lives Matter, equality, politics, women in business and much more, contact Evolve Talent & Speakers today.
