Ms. Eunice Golloh, the President and Founder of Impact Wave Initiative, a women community driven non-profit organization, has charged women to continue upgrading themselves in order to equip themselves to challenge the status quo and make a meaningful contribution to national development.
She made the call when her organization hosted its maiden “Impact Conference 2022” on Thursday 22nd December 2022 at the Holiday Hotel in Accra. It was a deep conservation about women empowering one another, looking out for each other and building synergies amongst themselves for growth.
In her welcome address, she said, “knowledge is an important currency today and there are several ways of acquiring knowledge now. With convenient online options to enhance skills and earn new certifications, it is important for women to make sure that they remain ahead of the curve. This is one of the ways to ensure that people come to you for your expert knowledge and remain relevant”, she emphasized.
She further admonished women not to wait around, rather be more proactive and assertive. “It is a well-known fact that women underestimate themselves all the time. On the other hand, men grab opportunities even if they feel they are not ready and this makes a huge difference”, she added.
The successful event, which attracted hundreds of young women from across the nation’s capital and beyond, provided a platform for women to share their real life experiences and discuss solutions to challenges women are confronted with.
The distinguished panellists and speakers at the event included Ms. Ablah Dzifa Gomashie, former Deputy Minister of Tourism of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Dr. Ama Amissah III, Mankessim Omanhemaa, Ms. Abigail Nikoi, a Business Development Professional and Marketer, Ms. Pearl Laryea, a Pastor and Entrepreneur and Ms. Cordelia Ama Selormey, a Media & Communications Consultant. Ms. Selina Bentoom, the Executive Director for African Foundation for Premature Babies & Neonatal Care (AFPNC), excellently moderated the event.
Impact Wave Initiative is dedicated to assisting young women build themselves to their best potential through mentorship, workshops, and physical development. Its vision is to change the concept and mindset of today’s women to change the narrative.
