Launched a year ago, the Executive Women Network has made significant progress in changing the female leadership landscape in Ghana by connecting, empowering and promoting female leaders in private organizations.

According to EWN Executive members, Patience Akyianu, Lucy Quist, Pearl Esua-Mensah, Freda Duplan and Edith Dankwa, EWN continues to implement strategies designed to create increase awareness and visibility of the organisation and its works while executing a robust membership recruitment drive.

“We continue to work on bringing on board more like-minded women executive leaders; we acknowledge that Ghanaian female leaders are changing the landscape. Today we know more women who are leading in business and governance and the many more who have built and are still building businesses from scratch,” they added. The Executive Women Network will be that platform that will accelerate this growth so that gender parity can be taken off Ghana’s to-do list and we can develop this country in equality.”

Through its networking sessions and speaker series, EWN members have received among others, coaching on career advancement, work-life balance, self-promotion and advancement through social media and other self-improvement topics relevant for their growth from some of the finest speakers and business minds in the country.

EWN Speaker Series – Worklife Balance

No comments

Work-life balance is often an elusive concept for everyone these days. It seems like our lives are getting busier and our visions of productivity and peace are often interrupted by demands and obligations beyond our control.

Women have a special perspective on work-life balance, because they are often expected to fulfill a particularly demanding role at home and at work. Women are often expected to provide a lot of support in their relationships with their families (whether that’s in their role as a “mom”, “spouse” or “sister/daughter”) while also still feeling excited and energized to pursue their business and career goals.

Want to learn how to efficiently manage your work-life balance? Join us at the 2ndEWN Speaker Series on Wednesday 10th August 2016 at Golden Tulip Hotel. Our guest speakers for the program will be Dr. Ellen Hagan (CEO – L’aine Services) and Uncle Ebo Whyte (CEO – Roverman Productions).

Relieve Stress with T’ai Chi

That sounded like a prayer. A prayer in a public school. God has no place within these walls, just like facts don’t have a place within an organized religion. Son, a woman is like a beer. They smell good, they look good, you’d step over your own mother just to get one! But you can’t stop at one. You wanna drink another woman! The Internet King? I wonder if he could provide faster nudity.
