Women must maintain concentration when moving up the business ladder


Tucci Goka Ivowi, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana Commodity Exchange (GCX), has urged Ghanaian women to maintain their concentration and cultivate a positive outlook in order to excel in the business arena.

She said that in order for women to climb the corporate ladder and get over the obstacles preventing their advancement, they must establish expertise in their respective fields of endeavour.


Mrs. Ivowi said that women need to be results-oriented because all wise leaders appreciate having intelligent people on their team when speaking at the Hollard Women High Tea forum in Accra.

In order to ascend to leadership roles, she remarked, “I think that as women, we need to build more experts in their field of endeavour. This would also remove the barriers impeding them from advancing across the corporate world.”

The venue
The forum, with the theme “Embrace equity,” was organised by Hollard Ghana to honour the role that women have played in the development of the nation’s insurance industry.

Additionally, it provided a venue for the female employees of Hollard Ghana to socialise with one another and with the speaker and other attendees.

Changing the story
The CEO stated that in order to alter the narrative, women must embrace equity and take chances to work together to address challenges that specifically affect women.

Women should always put in more effort. They should establish a work ethic that enables them to be truthful, inspired, creative, tough, sympathetic, and respected, he said.

She emphasised the importance of adopting these professional standards in order to stay current and move on to the next opportunity in the corporate world.

Women must pay closer attention to the ladder or risk falling. Instead, concentrate on getting results because doing so will advance you.

“We shouldn’t fall short of our own expectations or place the blame for our failure on others. Accept failure as an opportunity to improve. Don’t seize a chance only to blow it. Do not let your gender down; this action impacts women.

“To remain relevant, never stop developing yourself. But we ought to make an effort to wed both a partner and a friend. Someone who is encouraging of your professional development,” she said.

The forum’s moderator, Patience Akyianu, the Group CEO of Hollard Ghana, supported Mrs Ivowi’s opinions by promoting women in the nation.
