The President of Ghana Institution of Engineers (GhIE), Ing. Dr. Kwame Boakye, has charged female engineers in Ghana to have a clear vision in order to make impact in society.

He stressed the need for female engineers to impart knowledge in the young generation by mentoring them right from the primary and Junior High schools.

Ing. Dr. Boakye made this known at a breakfast meeting at the Engineers Centre in Accra organized by Women in Engineering (WINE)

He delivered a cutting-edge keynote address under the theme: ‘Be Bold for Change; How Female Engineers can be change Agents” as part of activities to mark the International Women’s Day.

Rita Ohene Sarfoh, President of WINE, in her address said, “Women’s Day is celebrated globally every year in honour of the remarkable contributions of women to our society.

“The day also commemorates the inspiring role of women around the world to secure women’s rights and build more equitable societies.

“The day also remembers the voices of many women that go unheard and who continue to be dominated from securing their rights and realizing their full potential.”

She indicated that the Women In Engineering (WIE) subcommittee of the World Federation of Engineers (WFEO) has recognized IWD and impressed on national bodies to do same.
