First Lady, Madame Monica Chakwera has emphasized on the significance of education as a means to attain economic freedom for women.
She made these remarks today during the Pan African Learning and Growth Network (PALGNET) Women in Management and Leadership 8th Annual Conference at Nkopola in Mangochi.
In her remarks, Madame Chakwera expressed her delight upon discovering that the conference would be addressing the topic of African women leaders who possess the appropriate mindset, attitudes, skills, and actions necessary to drive change.
Citing the current global market, she has urged female leaders to adopt an inclusive leadership style and foster a connection culture, in order to meet the demand for skill-based workforce planning, rather than solely focusing on qualifications and job titles in the global marketplace.
She however stressed that despite progress, women leaders are still facing challenges in effectively influencing decision-making and strategically communicating at the international level, which can hinder their advancement in climbing the corporate ladder.
