Female employees of MTN Ghana, in celebrating this year’s International Women’s Day, interacted with Professional Leadership Development Consultants Mrs. Doreen Baffoe and Madam Jennifer Agyeman in a session dubbed “Lunch and Learn” at MTN House in Accra.
In line with the theme for this year’s celebration, “DigitALL Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality by Embracing Equity and Support Systems to Succeed”, the guest speakers shared insights on the art of storytelling and communication. They also shared the essence of leveraging mentors and coaches in the workplace to enhance one’s career.
The Chief Human Resource Officer of MTN Ghana, Mrs. Amma Benneh-Amponsah said that several initiatives have been implemented by the company to create equity, diversity, and inclusion.
She said, “We have support from MTN Group to launch programmes that open us up from a talent support perspective to reach other women across the MTN Group. We have launched a programme called “Women@Work”, which is system- based and allows staff to identify females across MTN Group and select them as mentors, sponsors, and coaches. The ‘Women@Work’ programme complements MTN’s existing in-house “Stimulate, Transfer, Innovative and Relate” (STIR) Mentoring Programme.
Employees were given the platform to share their experiences under the STIR Mentoring programme, commenting on how it had helped their careers and personal development. They encouraged all staff to take advantage of the programmes.
MTN employees in Ghana closed the day with a ‘Sip and Groove’ networking party across all their footprints in Ghana.
