Pretoria – Public Service and Administration Minister Lindiwe Sisulu had described excellence as a personal trait that defines ones character.

“If it is lacking, it can be learnt and acquired over time and it is strengthened through competition,” she said.

Speaking at the Women of Excellence Summit held in Johannesburg earlier today, Sisulu describe excellence as the ability to drive oneself to be the best they can be.

“Excellence is to a large extent an expression and reaffirmation of the potential for change and the power of intelligent action.

“Our country and society can only be a better place with more successful woman, who are excelling in their multifaceted roles and professions,” she said.

Sisulu said the role of women in society is, and will continue to change and therefore women must strive for higher achievements and contributions.

“Women have a rare and special quality that will forever make them just so much more determined in everything they do.

“Women possess that rare gift to give their all to any particular cause they have chosen,” she said. – SAnews.gov.za
