WOMEN are becoming not only a significant unit of society but also influencing the course of social change and are supposed to be recognised, SES Zambia chief executive officer Jo-Anne Doras has said.
In an interview with the Daily Nation, Ms Doras said women deserve to be recognised because just like men, they play an important role in society as caregivers and breadwinners.
She explained that as a Zambia healthcare provider which also provides health insurance, her organisation last weekend hosted some of the influential women in Zambia as a way of recognizing the important role that they play in society. Ms Doras said her company hosted over 10 influential women in Lusaka as a way to recognise the important role that they play in society. She emphasised on the values the contribution women make in society .
“Women are an important element of our society and any time women come together with a collective intention, it’s a powerful thing. “For this function we wanted to get together a group of powerful women who have positioned themselves as important in their field and we wanted to commemorate the end of women’s month with them,” Ms Doras stated. Among the influential women in Zambia that were hosted included Barclays Bank Zambia chairperson, Chishala Kateka, PRMC executive director Bernadette Deka, ZOONA managing director Misozi Mkandawire and FSD Zambia chief executive officer Betty Wilkinson.
