Mbali Donna Khumalo
Mbali Donna Khumalo is a Researcher and Corporate Anthropologist from Johannesburg, South Africa. Mbali is currently based in France, where she is pursuing a Masters degree after having been awarded a full academic scholarship from the Embassy of France. Her Masters Degree is in Intercultural Management (an interdisciplinary Masters focussed on Business management, Intercultural Studies and Languages) at the Université de Bourgogne. Mbali’s love for travel, people and intercultural experiences began after having received a full academic scholarship from ASSIST, to attend the Maret School in Washington DC for a year, in 2010. The experience of bridge-building, international collaboration and cross-cultural earnings paved the way for her career in Anthropology and Intercultural Management consulting.
After obtaining a triple major Bachelors degree at the University of the Witwatersrand, majoring in English Literature, Anthropology, and French Literature; Mbali worked as the Research and Knowledge Officer for a global Women’s Fund, where she provided strategic support to youth organisations in over 23 countries in anglophone and francophone Sub-Saharan Africa. In addition to doing Diversity and Cultural Inclusion research and facilitation work in Corporate South Africa, Mbali has worked as an Anthropology Research consultant and organisational culture expert, and led regional research work for multinational corporations. When she can find the time, Mbali teaches conversational French to corporate executives as a passion project, as she believes that it’s important for South African corporate structures to empower themselves with the skills needed to work and collaborate with francophone Africa.
With social justice and youth empowerment being a major life-passion, in 2016, Mbali co-founded a social enterprise with her sister, called MbalEnhleSis. The sisters sold doeks (head-scarves) and donated a percentage of the profits towards providing free sanitary pads to young women at Wits University and at high schools. Thousands of sanitary towels were provided to young women and girls, through this initiative.
