The sooner we achieve gender parity in the corporate world the better chances we have of ensuring equal opportunities for both men and women in a modern and dynamic African society. For development to be impactful and sustainable we must have a seat at the table. It is the collective perspectives from our experiences that will determine a better future, not whether we are dressed in a skirt or a suit! Gender Parity should no longer be an option but mandatory at ALL levels.
I commit to raising awareness and building a culture that is all inclusive with no discrimination based on age or gender. I commit to using my platform as a voice for the youth to cultivate a constituency of gender sensitive youth ambassadors.
I commit to creating increasing opportunities for young women professionals to develop their careers. Through the various initiatives in our youth engagement strategy, we are laying out plans to train and mentor the youth and women across Africa to become empowered and vocal African leaders in the next 5 years.
