2023 Top 100 Ghana’s Women Board Directors announced by Avance Media


2023 Top 100 Ghana’s Women Board Directors announced by Avance Media.

Africa’s foremost PR and ratings firm, Avance Media, has announced the inaugural Top 100 Ghana’s Women Board Directors list for 2023.
This groundbreaking initiative aims to highlight the exceptional contributions of women who have demonstrated exemplary leadership, innovation, and impact within their respective industries.

The selection process for the Top 100 Ghana’s Women Board Directors was rigorous, considering a comprehensive range of criteria such as experience, education, board tenure, industry expertise, leadership capabilities, notable impact, awards and recognition, as well as public presence.

The research revealed that women hold 28% of board positions in Ghana, compared to the global average of 20% as indicated by The Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance. The report further showed that within the 52 Ghanaian companies listed, only 10 have women serving as their board chairs. Notably, 42% of the women on the list hold positions on bank boards.

A highlight of the event was the announcement of the maiden Ghana Board Diversity Awards. Media General was recognized as the Best Gender-Inclusive Board (private), while Exim Bank Ghana and the Ghana Revenue Authority clinched the title of Best Gender-Inclusive Board (public). These awards underscore the efforts of Ghanaian companies in championing gender diversity within their leadership structures.

The unveiling, which took place at the SB Incubator in Accra on August 14th, 2023 in Accra also featured an engaging panel discussion hosted by Prince Akpah on the pivotal role of women in board leadership. Esteemed panellists included Board Chair of Old Mutual Ghana, Hellen Amarquaye; President / Council Chair of the Institute of Directors-Ghan, Rev. (Mrs.) Angela Carmen Appiah (FIoD); and CEO of Acreaty Ghana, Elsie Appau-Klu. Their insights illuminated the significance of women’s contributions to effective corporate governance.

On the sidelines of the event, Prince Akpah, Founder of Avance Media, remarked, “The Top 100 Ghana’s Women Board Directors list is a testament to the remarkable achievements of women leaders who continue to pave the way for others. Their dedication, expertise, and impact are instrumental in shaping the future of corporate leadership in Ghana. We believe that celebrating their accomplishments will inspire more gender-inclusive boardrooms and contribute to a diverse and prosperous business landscape.”

The initiative is a creation of PR and rating firm, Avance Media with partnerships from Acreaty Ghana, Institute of Directors-Ghana (IoD-Gh), Business and Financial Times (BFT), EdwardsAsare.com, and Words Magazine.
