The much-anticipated Instinct Women Awards (IWA) has been rescheduled to take place on Friday, 1st October, 2021, at the prestigious Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra.
The Awards Ceremony announced by InstinctWave, Africa’s premium B2B company was originally scheduled for August, 28 but had to be postponed due to the recent upsurge of the number of infections of the coronavirus pandemic in Accra where the ceremony is slated to take place.
Chief Executive Officer for InstinctWave, Mr Akin Naphtal said the decision is based on the health interest of patrons of the event and the general public.
Mr Akin added that he is hopeful that with the rolling out of new vaccines and the expectation of the arrival of even more vaccines in the country, the rise in Covid-19 cases would dwindle before the newly set date and apologised for any inconveniences caused while calling for strict adherence to the COVID-19 health protocols.
The Instinct Women Award (IWA) is meant to celebrate the achievements of women in business, finance, sports, entertainment, media, arts & culture, philanthropic and visionary fields in Africa.
The event according to the organisers would crown the efforts of women who have worked to become game-changers, pioneers and status quo challengers across the continent.
IWA would attract participation from across the continent; Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya in particular. It will be a hybrid event – a combination of a “live” in-person audience with a “virtual” online audience to cater for non-Ghanaian participants that will not be able to attend the awards ceremony.
Mr Akin, during the launch of the prestigious award recently said, “Today we have more and more women in boardrooms, politics, higher echelons of power, and male dominated industries. There is an increased critical mass of women’s visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life. And as such the celebration of successful and outstanding women can never be overemphasized.”
The organisers of the event are noted for some of the continent’s most recognized awards schemes across the globe including the highly successful, Ghana Information Technology &Telecom Awards (GITTA) in its 11th year, Nigeria Tech Innovation & Telecom Awards now in its 5th year, The Africa Public Sector Conference & Awards in its 3rd year, Africa Construction and Real Estate Awards in its 3rd Year, Marketing World Awards in its 10th year, Africa Human Resource Innovation Awards in its 4th year and other industry related events in Africa.
