A departure from the inaugural event which was held in March last year, the second edition incorporated more categories including the ‘Best Assistant Director’ category.

Among the guests included chief guest Ms. Nadia Ahmed Abdalla who is the Chief Administrative Secretary for ICT, Innovation and Youth. She was accompanied by Dr. Mercy Mwangangi Chief Administrative Secretary in the Ministry of Health.

‘Speaking about the importance of the event, CAS Nadia Abdalla pointed out “As women it is very important that we be unapologetic about who we are, about what we can bring to the table, and about what makes us who we are.’’

She also urged women not to shy away from acknowledging their strength and abilities even though societal norms tend to shrink the woman and added that it is important too for women to support male counterparts.
