“With the theme Transformational Leadership, you will all agree with me that at the end of this seminar you will learn new scope of leadership strategies that aspiring women leaders need to be aware of,”Mr Clezy said.

“Gender Equality does not demand that men and women are equal but it is about fairness in access to opportunities by all men and women, boys and girls,” said Audrey Manu,National Programme Coordinator of UN Women's Advancing Gender Justice Programme.
