Accra, March 12, 2014: Airtel Ghana, the widely acclaimed socially responsible telecoms organization in Ghana has encouraged its women employees to be the best they can for society and humanity in all aspects of life.

The call was made at the short ceremony to commemorate International Women?s Day and to re-launch the company?s Divas programme at their head office in Accra. Airtel Divas is an internal initiative by Airtel Ghana aimed at nurturing and empowering women employees of the company to excel both at the workplace and society at large.

Welcoming participants, the Human Resource and Administrative Director of Airtel Ghana, Tina Muparadzi, said one of Airtel Ghana?s goals for the Divas programme was to develop and implement capacity enhancement programs that focus on the unique needs of women employees to help build their confidence as well as prepare them to move up the career ladder.

According to her, these training and development programmes would be provided not only by the Human Resources Department but also by women in management positions at Airtel who will counsel, coach and mentor the young women to be the preferred employee choice for the organization.

The special guest of honour for the programme, Regina Agyare, a computer software developer and social entrepreneur who is also the Chief Executive Officer and founder of Soronko Solutions challenged women to have a ?can do? attitude both in the corporate world and the communities in which they live. She said the biggest challenge facing young ladies of today was their inability to overcome the ?man?s world syndrome? and encouraged participants to be bold in taking initiatives that will bring change and impact society positively.? Airtel also donated a cash amount of GHC 2000 to support Soronko?s CSR initiative called Tech needs girls which aims at encouraging girls to take up careers in Technology.
