Women in Leadership advocate, International trade advisor and former SRC president of the University of Ghana, Ms. Esinam Seade has set out to empower the youth with her debut leadership forum dubbed The Election Lounge.
This event seeks to bring together individuals with experience in leadership and governance and those who nurse the ambition to run for office in the near future. It intends to empower young individuals, beef up their leadership credentials and enhance their ability to lead.
This initiative among others are part of Esinam’s effort to encourage the Ghanaian youth and ensure that they are on a path to discovering themselves as they make a case for their inclusion in leadership and governance to address the underwhelming level of youth representation.
Its ultimate objective is to help upcoming leaders to understanding leadership in its entirety and ascertain their reasons for wanting to be in these positions as well as how they can support or positively influence national governance.
Esinam has dedicated time and effort on similar projects in the past. Recently to commemorate International Women’s Day, she spent time to speak to a section of students at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), the Pentecost Students Association, international platforms such asTedX, the Air Namibia Women Summit among others and also often offers mentoring for young women.
She currently works as an International trade advisor and a project manager at the delegation of German Industry and commerce in Ghana. She also served as the second female SRC president at the university of Ghana and continues to impart lessons learnt to young individuals around her. Esinam as part of her service to society, often engages in philanthropic activities to lessen the impact of the corona virus on individuals and families living in rural communities.
The event is Scheduled for Saturday, June 5 at the YOTA skills hub in Accra.
