On the 23rd October 2019 marked a great day for AWLO( African Women In Leadership Organisation) Cameroon Chapter as they saw the success of their first ever event since its inception on the 2nd of March 2019 in Cameroon.The event that took place at the prestigious Djeuga Palace Hotel Yaounde , under the theme- “Women Leaders , Influencing the Next Generation of Female Leaders ” ,saw Over 200 young female leaders who came ready to overcome the challenges encountered in Leadership Roles and offer holistic mentorship to the next generation of young female leaders .
Speaking at the official opening of the event, the Vice president of AWLO,Cameroon Chapter, Madam Bertha Yenwo challenged women to dare their fears and appreciate the efforts of fellow women rather than run them down.
One of the speakers , Mrs.Marie Paul Niat reminded the women that self branding is primarily the building of a positive mindset which then translates to what we see on the outside. They were also challenged to use ICT innovations in upgrading their competencies and educational level.
Adding her voice to Barrister Onambele Anchang Conceilia’s, who said that, women should look beyond societal constructs which make them think like robots, motivational speaker Marja Motanga asked women to identify skills innate in them, improve on them and brand, then make it a selling point in the corporate world. A world in which many companies are now giving positions of responsibility to women, thus the need for every woman to keep adding value to what she already knows.
To these, the youngest speaker, CEO of Green House Ventures, Roland Fomundam, through practical examples demonstrated to the women that the moment a woman begins to see the value in another, her value also adds, given that a leader is not an island.
To add some colour to the event, the Awlo Cameroon Youth Council, graced the event with a wonderful display of different African Cultures via a fashion parade with different African Country outfits and music..thus celebrating the name African Women in Leadership and the different countries that makeup the organisation.
In all the women left this maiden AWLO event in Cameroon, with a sound understanding that their network is their net worth.. We can boldly say that the event achieved the goals of AWLO which are aimed at building empowering platform for women and harnessing the synergies of alliance..
