Our publisher and Editor-In-Chief, Vickie Remoe has been awarded the Women’s Empowerment Network’s Vicky Pat Sowe Award, WEM founder Mai Burnette received the award on her behalf at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington D.C. on February 21 2016.
Ms. Remoe said that the award held special significance because it was being presented to her by outstanding women who equally empower and inspire others. She also said that the best kind of empowerment is the kind that comes from one woman to another
“We must all each one stop being so focused on our individual projects and hustles and try to help each other,” said Ms Remoe from GoWoman’s Accra Bureau.
“If you support my small business and I support yours, if we partner and work together at the end of the day you will shine and I will shine and we will help each other make our dreams come true. We need less competition, and more cooperation.”
In absentia I will be awarded the Women’s Empowerment Network’s Vicki Pat Sowe Award for my commitment to the empowerment of women at an award ceremony at The Mayflower Hotel in Washington D.C. today. The VPS award is an award that is presented to women who are dedicated to the empowerment of women and girls, who are active participants in organizations that address the concerns of women and girls, demonstrate dedicated leadership among women’s organization(s), and/or have founded or run programs that focus on women and girls. The award was named in memory of Vicky Pat-Sowe who passed away from cancer in 2014. Carol Bangurah was the first recipient of the VPS Award. #Thankyou #WomensEmpowerment #Women #GoWoman
