WomanRising, Ghana’s leading network of Women Entrepreneurs & Business Leaders and a flagship project of The African Network of Entrepreneurs (TANOE) has released another comprehensive & inspiring list of the Top 50 Women Corporate Leaders in Ghana following their earlier list of the 100 Most Outstanding Women Entrepreneurs in Ghana to mark a year anniversary of their launch.
The list, which is NOT a ranking; features 50 leading corporate women from various business sectors including but not limited to Banking, Investments, Media, Telecommunications, Insurance, Local and International NGOs. It is aimed at recognizing the outstanding achievements of women in the development of the Ghanaian economy and inspiring the next generation of globally minded women business leaders.
In his statement, Ekow Mensah, the CEO of TANOE, expressed his excitement at the release of the list which he believes will serve as a catalyst for the rapid development of more women leaders in Corporate Ghana. With the tough competition women generally face in their quest to climb the corporate ladder and in their mission to transform businesses; it is refreshing and inspiring to know that these top 50 women against all odds have risen to the pinnacle of their careers serving as role models for other women; he added.
