Advocate Gcaleka brings a wealth of experience and insight having served as a special advisor to multiple government departments and contributing significantly to the fields of governance, compliance and policy development.

The aim of the Social Justice Lecture is to spotlight social justice as a global challenge and catalyse efforts to transform societies to become more socially just by becoming places where there is equal enjoyment of all rights and freedoms for all.

In a world grappling with increasing inequality and social unrest, Advocate Gcaleka’s address promises to ignite a crucial conversation. Her vision for a more just society, coupled with her understanding of legal intricacies in the South African context, makes her an ideal leader to guide us forward in our quest for equality and human rights.
