In support of the initiatives which encourage women to play an active role in global economic development, Digicel hosted a ‘Women in Leadership’ Forum at The Palms Resort in the Turks & Caicos Islands, to encourage young women to aspire to be leaders, and those already involved, to continue to be game changers in their respective areas.
The "Women in Leadership Learning” power series (WILL) is a leadership development programme that was launched in December 2015 to support and empower women as leaders in Digicel. This initiative focuses on developing women leaders through intense leadership development workshops, executive coaching and a mentoring programme that matches them with other more senior leaders within the business.
Held under the theme ‘Developing and Empowering our female talent in the Caribbean’, the forum gave over 100 young women the opportunity to listen to a distinguished panel of speakers, share their stories of the challenges they faced on their way to being successful in life, and how they overcame those challenges.
Speakers included, Honourable Akierra Missick, Deputy Premier, Education Minister, Honourable Josephine Connolly, Deputy Speaker, House of Assembly, Rhondalee Braithwaite-Knowles, Attorney General; Jennifer Carnegie, Digicel Group Chief People Officer, Sonia Bien-Aime, President, TCIFA; and Mona Beeson, General Manager, The Sands Hotel.
Packed into four dynamic days of lectures, simulations, techniques and tactics, the WILL Power Series is designed to build and strengthen leadership and confidence skills, helping with career navigation planning as well as exposing participants to role models for success. The programme also includes executive coaching and a mentoring that see participants being matched with leaders within the business.
