Chartered Institute of Building (CIOBThe Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), Ghana Centre, has sent out a congratulatory message to Ms Eunice Ogbugo, a young female contractor chosen for this year?s Global Women?s Mentoring Programme.

Ms Ogbugo, owner and founder of Eugo Terrano– a road and civil engineering company, is one of two women chosen from Ghana and a total of twenty-seven women chosen globally for this year?s programme which is organised by the US embassy.

The programme connects emerging international women leaders with Fortune?s Most Powerful Women Leaders to encourage the next generation of women leaders to bring positive change to their companies and communities.  

In a statement, the Chairman of CIOB Ghana Rockson Dogbegah said the Institute is immensely proud of her achievement — mainly because she has shown courage, hard work and perseverance in an otherwise male-dominated field. She also recently received two awards for Business Excellence and Female Personality at the 2012 National Youth Achievers Awards ceremony.

After graduating from KNUST with a degree in Civil Engineering in 2004, she worked with Contera — an engineering consultancy firm. While employed there, MS Ogbugo realised that being confined to an office was not her calling and therefore undertook a six-month course in entrepreneurship to enable her start her own company. Her company currently employs 25 people.

The CIOB is encouraging many young women to emulate her example and go on to higher heights.
