Conference Committee

Boitumelo Chrysanthemum Ramasodi

Tumi Ramasodi is GCCA’s first Regional Director for Southern Africa. In 2020, a colon cancer diagnosis changed her course of action and her life path. Ms. Ramasodi’s diagnosis inspired her to want more for others like herself. As a survivor, she wanted more done for patients at the grassroots level and this prompted her to become a colon cancer advocate and patient navigator. Her passion and love for helping others connected her to the Global Colon Cancer Association.

‍Her experience in the non-profit industry and passion for community work began when she joined Wits Health Consortium to provide a service for the Reproductive Health and HIV Research Unit (RHRU) based in Soweto’s Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital. She then joined the Nelson Mandela Aventis project for combating tuberculosis (TBFree), working with communities in 9 South African provinces to create awareness around TB as a disease.

In 2011 she started the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Africa as a Youth Development Professional. She represented South Africa at an international conference held in San Francisco. In 2015, she was selected to represent South Africa for the Boys & Girls club, participating in a project at the Virginia Commonwealth University called Project Push.

Additionally, Ms. Ramasodi has 14 years of experience in Human Resources Management. She has had repeated success in implementing best practices, building HR departments from the ground up, and transforming disorganized HR departments into efficiently run units.

‍One of Tumi’s major strengths lies in developing and maintaining stakeholder relationships.
