    New Era College Participates In The Woman to Woman Power Breakfast

    26 October, 2021

    New Era College was proud to be amongst the participants at the Woman to Woman Power Breakfast
    held at Cresta Lodge last week under the theme: Generation Equality: realizing Women’s rights for an
    Equal Future.
    The glamorous event saw a star ensemble of leading Women coming together to share their experiences
    and challenges they have faced as Women in their respective fields so the next generation of working
    women don’t have to go through the same hurdles. The Guest of Honor for the day was the ever pleasant
    Honorable Minister of Finance Miss Peggy Serame who shared her sentiments of Governments gains
    made towards gender equality. “Through the signing of international agreements such as the 2017 SADC
    gender protocol clearly demonstrates Governments commitment towards empowering women.”
     The College was brilliantly represented by the Acting Dean in the Faculty of Engineering Ms Glory
    Ifiegbu. The Acting Dean shared her insights on Women in Engineering and highlighted the importance
    of having the female voice at the decision making table. “We need more Women to participate in this
    traditionally male driven environment so that they can bring new ideas to the table that affect women such
    as making working conditions friendlier towards Women in Engineering.”
    The Power breakfast extended a special invitation to two young ladies from Ledumang Senior Secondary
    School STEM club to be a part of the amazing day. The College pledged to offer the young girls free
    attendance to their weekly STEM tinkering sessions that aim to equip learners with STEM skills for the
    fourth industrial revolution workforce such as programming, robotics and electronics. We look forward to
    welcoming these future engineers at the home of engineering!
