blsa thumb medium70 98BusinessLive reports that Imperial CEO Mark Lamberti has resigned from the board of Business Leadership SA (BLSA), which follows his recent resignation from the Eskom board.  

This comes in the wake of the recent ruling in the High Court in Pretoria that found he had discriminated against a former employee.  Lamberti was BLSA’s longest-serving director.  BLSA chairman Jabu Mabuza said in a statement on Monday that its members were committed to “encouraging and empowering senior black leadership."  In the context of the court ruling, Mabuza added that the board appreciated Lamberti’s public apology in respect of the matter.  BLSA added that this was an important lesson for its members on managing transformation.  The court found that Lamberti had wrongfully impaired the dignity of former Imperial employee Adila Chowan by referring to her as a "female employment equity candidate".
