On THURSDAY 9 TH MARCH, CHARTERHOUSE in collaboration with JOY FM and

ACCESS W INITIATIVE will be organising THE FIRST NATIONAL WOMEN’S SUMMIT in

celebration of INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY, a day set aside throughout the

world to celebrate the achievements of Women and their contribution to society and

National Development.

The summit will take place at the ACCRA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE CENTRE

from 9am to 5pm, and promises to be a ground-breaking day as it will feature

powerful presentations from WOMEN TRAILBLAZERS across the various industries

and an eager audience ready to listen with rapt attention.

The lot of the Ghanaian woman has changed over the years since Independence and

as Ghana turns 60 this year, it is the right time to review our journey by looking into

the past, appreciating the present and projecting into the future. Hence the theme –

Celebrating Ghanaian Women 60years after Independence, the Achievements…the

Future.

This theme will ran through all the Plenary sessions which will be chaired by none

other than one of our cherished and a Giant trailblazer …Dr. Joyce Aryee. Three main

plenaries will be held in the morning and three in the afternoon. The morning

sessions are: The Corporate Woman with Panel Discussions by LUCY QUIST, CEO OF

AIRTEL, PATIENCE AKYIANU, MD OF BARCLAYS BANK and ANGELA KYEREMATEN

JIMOH, COUNTRY GENERAL MANAGER OF IBM.

The Woman Entrepreneur Session on the topic BUILDING YOUR BUSINESS INTO

THE FUTURE will have a four woman panel made up of KATE QUARTEY PAPAFIO,

CEO of REROY CABLES, ELLEN HAGAN, CEO of L’AINE SERVICES, GRACE AMEY

OBENG of FC GROUP and EDITH DANKWA of BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL TIMES.

There will also be a WOMEN AND HEALTH Session led by MARIE STOPES GHANA

which will be followed by a session on PERSONAL IMAGE and GROOMING titled

WEAR YOUR CONFIDENCE by DZIGBORDI DOSOO, CEO of ALLURE GROUP.

The final session for the day will be the YOUTH MOTIVATION SESSION titled

TAKING THE FUTURE, and it will be handled by DR. ZANETOR RAWLINGS, MP for

KLOTTEY-KORLE, EUGENIA TACHIE-MENSON of YOUNG EDUCATORS FOUNDATION

and THERESA AYOADE, CEO of CHARTERHOUSE.

Attendance is FREE. Pre-registration can be done at www.womensworldghana.com

Of course wherever women gather, there should be an opportunity to shop. So

running alongside the Summit will be a mini 1-day expo of Women in Business,

with carefully selected exhibitions ranging from unique Food concepts to

specialised Fashion and Beauty.

Its truly an exciting time to be a woman and the Summit promises to inspire and

motivate Women to explore their fullest potential at work, home, in our

communities and the Nation.
