Managing Director of Airtel Ghana, Lucy Quist, has urged fellow career women in business to assist other women in business to exhibit their full potential in their respective careers.
Lucy Quist believes it behoves successful women to reach out and offer assistance to vulnerable ones to also climb the corporate ladder.
Speaking at the formal launch of the Executive Women Network (EWN) in Accra, the Airtel boss was of the opinion that women should be equipped to be able to assume top positions in society.
‘‘We are a network of executive women. That means we will draw on each other’s experiences and strengths by inspiring each other; empowering one another and supporting each other to realise our fullest potential in the corporate environment,” she stated.
Lucy Quist added, “For women at the top, it means that we need to reach back and pull out the women along with us on that journey and keep striving to go even further in our own journeys.”
