The United Nations (UN) has set aside March 8 each year to recognize the achievements of women. Also, the day is used to dispel gender stereotypes, expose prejudice, combat discrimination, promote inclusivity, and mobilize support for quickening gender parity.
This year’s commemoration has “DigitAll Innovation and technology for gender equality” as its worldwide theme.
Selected female engineering students from Takoradi Technical University visited the Power Plant to commemorate the day. In order for the students to better comprehend the engineering-related courses they are taking, they were given hands-on experience.
The guides for the all-female tour were Chemical Engineer Ms. Pearl Abrokwah and Project Manager at Karpowership Ms. Michelle Hazel, who led the women through the Powership’s operations.
The trip included stops to the Powership’s control center, engine room, onboard substation, and other crucial operating locations.
Ms. Hazel urged the women to enter the energy industry because it offers a variety of chances for success and influence.
According to Karpowership’s Corporate Communications Manager Sandra Amarquaye, the organization is ready to assist in achieving SDG objective 5 Gender equality. “We are devoted to empowering women, which is why we’ve implemented several programs that do just that for young girls. They consist of the Karpowership Scholarship Program, Karpowership Mentoring Program, and Karpowership Female Power.
I encourage women to advance in even challenging fields with a male predominance as we observe this day. Ms. Amarquaye added, “As a corporate institution that has a lot of interest in women and advancing conversations about women, we thought this is a sterling opportunity to give these female engineering students the chance to have an out-of-classroom experience of what they are being taught in school.”
Ms. Abigail Ayine, a tour participant, said she now has a greater knowledge of how the power supply chain functions.
Other recipients expressed their sincere thanks to Karpowership’s management and employees for showing a particular interest in their education, professional development, and inclusion as the globe unites to support and celebrate women.
