To acknowledge and appreciate the vital role of women and their contributions to its organization and country, AirtelTigo has organized a session on a topic – ‘The AirtelTigo Woman: Mind, Body and Soul’ for its female employees in Accra.
Opening the session with her upbringing, the Chief Executive Officer of AirtelTigo, Mrs. Mitwa Kaemba Ng’ambi, thanked the employees for their efforts and contributions to building the AirtelTigobrand.
With a track record of building high-performing teams and driving business profitability across operations in Africa, Mrs. Ng’ambi told the gathering that: “hard work is good, but clarity in your mind about what you want to do is better and as a woman, one thing you should always strive to be is your authentic self.”
Speaking on the ‘effective use of the mind’, the former Vice President of Unilever Francophone Africa, Ms. Maidie Akutu, said: “the power of the mind and the ability to nurture it as part of your total wellbeing for both personal and corporate life.”
She disclosed: “For women, we need to have the innate desire to continue to improve ourselves; you limit the potential of your mind if you do not read. Cultivate the habit of reading to broaden your mind and horizon beyond your core professional area. Learn a new skill to improve yourself, smile, make friends, go for mentorship sessions and stop negative talks.”
“Staying in shape is beneficial to our health, emotional, physical and professional being. It makes you more confident and drives your ambitions to take on extra tasks,” said Ms. Nuku, who is the Head of Production and Event Management at Roverman Productions.
Closing the session on spiritual growth, the CEO of Legacy & Legacy and Executive Director of Springboard Roadshow Foundation, Mrs. Comfort Ocran shared spiritual factors that make women unique in the corporate space. She encouraged the women to work towards God’s standard of excellence and not that of humans.
She cited biblical characters of Ruth, Esther and Mary and pointed out some traits they could develop in the build-up of their spiritual life. “In all three characters, we can conclude that building yourself up spiritually can make you diligent, have a great attitude, humble, visionary and develop other exemplary traits that would help shape your career life for the good.”
