Female Wave of Change welcomes Dr Lumka Maneli into her Circle of Wise Women
Female Wave of Change is very excited to welcome Dr Lumka Maneli from South Africa into her Circle of Wise Women. Dr Lumka joined Female Wave of Change in 2020 as a wavemaker in the team of Ambassador SA Tebello Mokhema. During the Global Conference 2020 Dr Lumka acted as the spokesperson of the health team. Her expertise will be of great value for the global Female Wave of Change community.
Health and Wellness Consultant
Dr Lumka Maneli is an Occupational Health and Wellness consultant with 14 years in medical practice. She is a founder and director of Doyi Occuhealth, and in this capacity directs occupational health medicine and drives wellness and disease prevention efforts for various large corporates in South Africa.
She is also a specialist in health risk assessment and management for safety critical operations and is a certified travel, aviation and diving medicine practitioner. She is a strong advocate for people’s participation in their own health and driving culture change to promote health supporting behaviours.
Changing the narrative about women from being victims to leaders and influencers is what drives her. She is passionate about woman empowerment as a tool for social transformation and is always excited to collaborate with others to influence conversations for positive social transformation.
She understands the importance of solidarity when advocating for a cause because without unity women will always be victims and this is the main reason she chose to ride the Wave of Change.
