GOODWILL MESSAGE DELIVERED ON BEHALF OF THE DIRECTOR-GENERAL OF THE GHANA ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISSION (GAEC) ON INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY 2022

Good morning, distinguished women of GAEC.

On the onerous occasion of International Women’s Day, which has been specially set aside globally to reflect on and celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women I present this goodwill message to all women, especially our affable and hardworking staff.

 

On behalf of the Director-General, Management and Staff of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission, we add our voices to the billions of people from all walks of life, tribe, creed, race, social and economic status to mark this day under the theme BREAK THE BIAS. 

We can pride ourselves in the remarkable progress made since the inception of the Fourth republican constitution, as women have distinguished themselves and risen to enviable positions in public, corporate and political leadership. On the face of these remarkable feats, it is easy to assume that the case for gender equality is a thing of the past. However, biases against women still exist in every aspect of our lives. There still remain inequalities in resource allocations, decision-making, political representation, social and economic empowerment.

 

We, therefore, call on everyone to work towards breaking the bias right from our homes, places of work and places of worship. We must heed the call to a gender-equal world: a world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination; a world so diverse, equitable, and inclusive; a world where difference is valued and celebrated. 

 

We salute all the women at GAEC who are working tirelessly to ensure we realize our vision to become the leading organization contributing to sustainable national prosperity through the effective utilization of nuclear, biotechnology and other related technologies. We appreciate and acknowledge all your contributions to the growth and development of GAEC. We thank you for all your dedication, continuous support and the innovative ideas you bring on board to make GAEC a peaceful and industrious working environment.

Yes! Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
