As the world prepares to celebrate International Women’s Day globally in March, Ghana’s leading total beverage business, Guinness Ghana, is leading the charge with the Obaasima regional campus tours organised in collaboration with Obaasima Summit Foundation.
The regional tours kickstart in the Greater Accra Region on Friday, February 25, 2022, at the R.S Amegashie Hall, University of Ghana Business School in Accra. This year’s edition of the campus tour is expected to be held on the campuses of some key universities across five regions, with the aim of building consensus around women empowerment and the progressive portrayal of women.
The Obaasima Summit campus tours are aimed at empowering women on the need to uphold the tenets of teamwork, networking, excellence in public speaking, interviews and imbibing positive attributes while celebrating the success stories of women all over the country. The 2022 edition of the Guinness Ghana Obaasima Summit is themed “progressive portrayal: building capacity for elevation”.
Speaking to the media, Director of Corporate Relations at Guinness Ghana, Sylvia Owusu-Ankomah pointed out that the tours represented a healthy way of connecting with different categories of women for immense impact.
