The Executive Women Network (EWN), a non-profit organisation of women in senior management and executive positions in private organizations and women entrepreneurs of well established businesses in Ghana, has announced the launch of its maiden conference – the EWN Annual conference – scheduled for Friday 20th October 2017 at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra.
The conference, which is expected to attract the largest gathering of women leaders across all sectors of the economy, will be held under the theme: Rebranding Ghana to drive business growth – the perspective of women leaders.
Announcing the launch of the conference, Freda Duplan, Managing Director of Nestle Ghana and Chairperson of EWN said “As women leaders, our role in driving inclusive business and economic growth is not lost on us. We are in a unique position to actively shape the narrative of our country and to reposition Ghana as the preferred destination for business and investment not only in Africa but globally. This conference is a call to action to move from rhetoric to action & execution in rebranding our country for growth”.
She continued “This conference is also a response to the many women leaders who have been yearning for an opportunity to be part of the solution. It is an open invitation to join other women leaders as we deliberate and work together to rebrand for growth”.
The conference, which is expected to attract over 300 participants, will feature some of the most outstanding speakers from business, academia, politics and civil society as well as the young people of Ghana who will share their own perspective on the subject.
The Executive Women Network, since its formation, has been instrumental in inspiring action, empowering and supporting female leaders to be key influencers in various fields and organizations within Ghana and beyond.
