It is a vehicle to assist the people and businesses of Africa to be part of global networks through connectivity, communication and development which is what Africa needs.
What is your advice for women who say they struggle to make themselves heard in the workplace?
It took me ten years of pushing and training to qualify to be in this sector. I say continue pushing and don’t give up, as long as you believe in it.
How do you deal with women competing with each other in the workplace?
There is an old African proverb, "Two donkeys pulling the same string in opposite directions will never enjoy the green grass." Working together is a win-win situation, and no-one is an island.
If you were your country's energy minister what would you do to make it easier for women to enter/stay/thrive in the energy sector?
