In the spirit of the International Women’s Day celebration and in recognition of women’s role in the society, Solalina Investment Group has said that women should be accorded equal rights at the workplace.
According to the chairman of the group, Mr. Moses Oruaze Dickson, “this season is in celebration of women’s social, economic, cultural and political successes. In recognition of the roles that women have to play to groom the society as mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, colleagues or friends.”
He noted that it is a time to reflect on the progress made and to call for change even as we celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played extraordinary roles in the history of their countries and communities.
Oruaze, who has been a relentless campaigner for the need for more women to be given opportunities both in the workplace and society at large, called on other local and international organisations, to give more opportunities to women.
As part of the company’s staffing policy, it ensures that there is gender balance across its subsidiary companies and branch networks. Over 60 per cent of staff members in the group are women, with about 50 per cent of them in senior-level roles. This underscores the drive of the group to create opportunities for every stakeholder, irrespective of their gender.
Dickson added: “As we recognise your special place in our lives and society, I want to the join everyone, to say in a loud voice to all the women of the world and Africa, #PressForProgress, for we believe in you.”
