Founder: Lindelwa Skenjana

Indima Yam is founded and created by Lindelwa Skenjana: Mother, Author, Speaker, Thinker and Feeler.

Lindelwa is a marketing professional by training, she brings a depth of expertise across different industries such as telecommunications, management consulting, financial services and SMME development.

She has applied her knowledge and skill set in these different industries which have sharpened her ability to apply different sets of tools, innovation and critical thinking. She has had the pleasure of working with diverse professionals from all walks of life.

Lindelwa draws her core inspiration from meeting, learning and exchanging with people from all over the world, across generations, young and old. Whilst being rooted in Africa, having travelled to four of the seven continents of the world, through experiences Lindelwa has come to appreciate the similarities in Black women's corporate experiences globally. On the basis of this realisation it is therefore important to create spaces that nurture discourse that connect us to ourselves and to each other.

Lindelwa dedicates her life's work to Black women, mothers, decision makers & leaders to prioritize the hard inner work in order to achieve sustainable external success.
