About the event

To celebrate women in IT we are hosting a powerful Women's only event  “Building Resilience in the Workplace”  on the 31st August 2022. 

This is in line with the 2022 theme “Women’s Socio-Economic Rights and Empowerment: Building Back Better for Women’s Improved Resilience”. Our guest speaker, Dr Cheryl Wright, will tackle the challenges women face in the corporate and tech industry as well as share methods on how to continue to empower women to continue building resilience and rise above adverse situations.

About our Guest Speaker

Cheryl has a private practice in Johannesburg as an Educational Psychologist registered with the HPCSA, and as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner® certified with the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute in the USA.

After 20 years of teaching in the Secondary School environment, Cheryl became involved with pastoral counselling at Bryanston Methodist Church which led to my studies at the University of Johannesburg to complete a M.Ed and then D.Ed in Educational Psychology. Cheryl completed her doctoral studies in 2013 which provided her with an opportunity to work with a community in Soweto under the guidance of an NGO, Ikageng. Her internship with Family Life provided training to work with families and complete training in mediation with couples. Her current family work includes parenting as a certified Circle of Security Facilitator. Her interest in Somatic Experiencing started in 2011 through her association with the Milton Erickson Institute. Somatic experience practices work with the nervous system to nurture a state of intrinsic balance and self-regulation by restoring the natural rhythms of the body. In 2013, Cheryl completed an Intensive One Year Narrative Therapy Training Program with the Dulwich Centre in Australia. Her theoretical orientation is centred on Neuro-Narrative practices supporting integrative work with the mind and the body.
