As part of the month long celebrations, highly accomplished and iconic women are invited to share their life and professional experience with Airtel women and staff.
The month long campaign themed ”Winning with Women” seeks to encourage effective action for advancing, encouraging and recognizing women in their various fields of endeavour. It is also to recognise the enormous contributions women make as equal contributing partners in the socio-economic development of Ghana, Africa and in the World.
Hannah Agbozo, Legal and Corporate Affairs Director in her address remarked, “Women in Airtel continue to shatter many glass ceilings and advance across new frontiers in their careers and personal lives.
She continued “We will continue to work towards measurable and impactful actions that resonates with this year’s global theme “Planet 50-50: Step It Up for Gender Equality”. Today I am happy and proud to say we have an almost equal balance of male to female representation in senior leadership within Airtel Ghana and we will continue to ensure, pave the way and set good examples so other women can emulate”.
Ms. Efua Addotey, Acting Board Chair of Women in Law and Development (WILDAF) and the Vice President of FIDA Ghana, spoke about legislations on matrimonial property rights and the distribution of property in Ghana.
International Women’s celebration for Airtel Ghana is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in their countries and communities.
Airtel believes in the power of potential – that every individual has an inherent capacity to succeed in whatever they put their minds to.
