99FM Joins the world to call for #BalanceForBetter

Commemorated worldwide on 8 March every year, International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This year’s theme is #BalanceForBetter -a call for a more gender-balanced world.

99FM is calling for at least #99Women to tell us what gender balance is!

We have teamed up with formidable financial consultant, Afra Schimming-Chase of Chase & Associates, to give 4 women the opportunity to better their personal finances. These women will participate in a chapter focusing on investments as part of Chase & Associates Table of 12. www.afrachase.com

99FM listeners can also look forward to being engaged by female entrepreneurs, artists, athlests, politicians and women’s activists during on air interviews. Our Friday, 8th of March playlist will also be dedicated to female musicians only.

How can you get involved?

  • Strike your best #BalanceForBetter pose (https://www.internationalwomensday.com/Theme) and make a collage or short video featuring you and the women in your life who also believe in the cause.
  • Caption the post with a one-liner on what you think gender balance is in 2019.
  • Tag or mention one woman who you wish to empower to take part in the chapter on investments as part of the Chase & Associates Table of 12.
  • Use the official hashtag #BalanceForBetter as well as #99Women.


Join 99FM as we celebrate, honour and engage with inspiring women and raise awareness for gender balance.

“Everyone has a part to play – all the time, everywhere.

From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence. Balance drives a better working world. Let’s all help create a #BalanceforBetter.”
