The National Women’s Summit – Meet The Trailblazers

On Thursday 9TH MARCH, CHARTERHOUSE in collaboration with JOY FM and ACCESS W INITIATIVE will be organising THE FIRST NATIONAL WOMEN’S SUMMIT in celebration of INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY, a day set aside throughout the world to celebrate the achievements of Women and their contribution to society and National Development.

The summit will take place at the Accra International Conference Centre from 9am to 5pm, and promises to be a ground-breaking day as it will feature powerful presentations from WOMEN TRAILBLAZERS across the various industries and an eager audience ready to listen with rapt attention.

The lot of the Ghanaian woman has changed over the years since Independence and as Ghana turns 60 this year, it is the right time to review our journey by looking into the past, appreciating the present and projecting into the future. Hence the theme – Celebrating Ghanaian Women 60years after Independence, the Achievements…the Future.

This theme will run through all the plenary sessions which will be chaired by none other than one of our cherished and a Giant trailblazer …Dr. Joyce Aryee. Three main plenaries will be held in the morning and three in the afternoon. The morning sessions are: The Corporate Woman with Panel Discussions by Lucy Quist, CEO OF Airtel, Patience Akyianu, MD OF Barclays Bank and Angela Kyerematen Jimoh, Country General Manager of IBM.

The Woman Entrepreneur Session on the topic Building Your Business Into The Future will have a four woman panel made up of Kate Quartey Papafio, CEO of Reroy Cables, Ellen Hagan, CEO of L’aine Services, Grace Amey Obeng of FC Group and Edith Dankwa of Business And Financial Times.

There will also be a WOMEN AND HEALTH Session led by Marie Stopes Ghana which will be followed by a session on PERSONAL IMAGE and GROOMING titled Wear Your Confidence by Dzigbordi Dosoo, CEO of Allure Group.

The final session for the day will be the Youth Motivation Session titled Taking The Future, and it will be handled by Dr. Zanetor Rawlings, MP for Klottey-Korle, Eugenia Tachie-Menson of Young Educators Foundation and Theresa Ayoade, CEO Of Charterhouse.

Attendance is FREE. Pre-registration can be done at

Of course wherever women gather, there should be an opportunity to shop. So running alongside the Summit will be a mini 1-day expo of Women in Business, with carefully selected exhibitions ranging from unique Food concepts to specialised Fashion and Beauty.

Its truly an exciting time to be a woman and the Summit promises to inspire and motivate Women to explore their fullest potential at work, home, in our communities and the Nation.

THE NATIONAL WOMEN’S SUMMIT is organized by Ghana’s leading events management and production company – Charterhouse in partnership with JOY FM and Access W Initiative and supported by Marie Stopes Ghana, The Executive Women Network And Business & Financial Times.
