Pontsho Pilane

Non-executive Director

Pontsho is a successful journalist, editor, media lecturer and trainer who has focused on the intersections of gender, health and class in post-apartheid South Africa. She brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in covering sexual and reproductive health, training other journalists on how to ethically and sensitively report on gender-based violence, sexual and reproductive health as well as gender in general. She is also the director of Mathaba Media, a bespoke consulting agency that creates impactful and creative advocacy campaigns, media training and communications strategies that are deeply rooted in Pan African feminist principles and using communications as a tool for social change.

Pontsho has a keen interest in public health, human rights and gender and how they intersect and is a regular media analyst on these issues. One of her most valued roles is as a regular analyst on Motsweding FM, where she gets to discuss and explain complex health and gender issues in her mother tongue Setswana.

The work of the Centre for Environmental Rights Board is important in South Africa, now more than ever, as inequalities and injustices worsen. I am proud to support the work of an organisation that is ensuring that future generations have a healthy environment to live and thrive in.
