CEOs on Accelerator Programme urged to support population management


The Executive Director of the National Population Council Dr. Leticia Adelaide Appiah has asked business leaders to partner with the National Population Council to help bridge the inequality gap and make things work by improving the quality of life of everyone which enhances business sustainability.

Dr. Appiah was speaking at the 2nd CEO Breakfast Retreat organised by the CEO Accelerator Programme. “Your vision is in line with our vision. Our vision is to improve and sustain the quality of life of all the people, not just a section of the people. Because if you are well and I am not well, I will live in constant need while you live in constant fear. That is what inequality does, and the foundation for equality is the National Population Council. When the National Populations Council gets partners like you to make things work, then your businesses will thrive.”

Dr. Leticia Appiah added that the National Population Council is also part of the engine of growth, if not really the engine of growth, and so encouraged businesses to support the activities of the Council.

The Convener of the CEO Accelerator Programme, Robert Marshall Bennin who is also Founder and Chief Learning Strategist at TEMPLE Advisory Limited also shared that “being a CEO for Good” means “enabling others and lifting the entire village. Our leadership is a call to maximize the outcomes available to all stakeholders in the village.”
