Course Overview

The primary aim of broad-based black economic empowerment (B-BBEE) is to promote the achievement of the constitutional right to equality, increase broad-based and effective participation of black people in the economy and promote a higher growth rate, increased employment and a more equitable income distribution. In order to achieve this, the South African government has enacted a policy of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment.

It is businesses’ responsibility to give affect to these requirements. The first step in the process of achieving this is by understanding B-BBEE so that you can implement it to your business’s best advantage.
