Friday, March 8 marked the maiden SAMSPOP event in line with the global theme for the 2019 International Women’s Day – ‘Balance for Better’.
The event was held at Airport City in Accra and was hosted by Lady Sam and three panellists.
Psychotherapist, Patience Osekre, a panel member, told the exclusively invited audience that in order for women to be balanced, they needed to be emotionally sound.
Deputy MD for Ghana Commodity Exchange, Tucci Ivowi, also urged the women to be leaders.
She urged them to be confident, focused and strive to make the results of their efforts speak for themselves.
The event was attended by predominantly women who were engaged and entertained throughout the night.
The third panellist, Eunice Toryni, made reference to the five sisters in the Bible who petitioned Moses to claim their fathers land.
She explained that in those days when a father died the land belonged to the male heir, however, in the case of these sisters there was no male heir so they challenged the status quo and made claim and were granted their request.
According to her, the moral in that biblical story must be told for women to make them understand that they have the power and can challenge the status quo.
An attendee, Georgia Adjei, said she found the SAMSPOP event empowering, educational, encouraging and fun.
The evening was sponsored by Carnival and Awake purified drinking water by Kasapreko Company Limited and CapeMay properties.
MD of CapeMay Properties and Director of Kasapreko, Eunice Adjei, described the program as classy and informative.
