On the occasion of International Women’s Day 2020, A&P Law Firm had the pleasure to host a breakfast discussion dedicated to women on the theme: Women in Business, How to find balance ?
We were honoured by the presence of Her Excellency, Sharon Ganney, Deputy British High Commissioner in Cameroon who shared the panel with two inspiring women, Mirella Nzia Batonga, Marketing Director of Global Wine and Arielle Kitio Tsamo, CEO of CAYSTI.
This vibrant breakfast discussion was a great occasion for the speakers to share their experiences on balancing empowering professional lives with fulfilling personal lives, on the tension between selflessness and selfishness and finally on the need for women to take care of themselves before taking care of others.
The final point was to address the question of gender equality in Cameroon’s society, and despite the recognised dynamism of cameroonian women, it was agreed that due to education, cultural bias and other factors, this is not yet a reality but remains an objective to be reached.
We wish all women a Happy International Women’s Day 2020!
