GEORGETOWN, GUYANA, THURSDAY, MARCH 9, 2023: The International Energy Conference and Expo Guyana 2023 is pleased to sponsor the third annual Guyana Women and Girls’ Summit 2023. The event is being organized by the Women’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry Guyana with the event being hosted on Thursday, March 9, 2023, at the Guyana Marriott Hotel, Georgetown, Guyana from 09:00 hrs to 13:30 hrs.
Kurt Baboolall, Chief Executive Officer of the International Energy Conference and Expo Guyana 2023 said, “This year, we are happy to support the Women and Girls’ Summit because it fits with our mission to establish a culture of learning and skill building. Let’s not just honour women and girls one day a year; instead, we should make a sustained endeavour on the part of the government and all societal groups. To ensure that women and girls in our society have access to the same chances as men, we must close any gaps and work for a better future for women and girls.”
The Guyana Women and Girls’ Summit 2023’s main objective is to bring together vulnerable groups of girls aged 14-18, women in entrepreneurship, women in executive leadership, women in the workforce, and women in policy development into a common environment to explore ideas and possibilities for the furtherance of the growth and advancement of our girls and women in all spheres of societal contribution.
At the recently concluded International Energy Conference and Expo Guyana 2023, a panel discussion was held for ‘Women in Energy’ where discussions were had on how women are changing the landscape of how the energy sector is viewed and how their contributions have so far shaped the development of Guyana’s oil and gas industry.
The Women’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry expressed the view that they are elated to welcome the International Energy Conference and Expo Guyana to its lineup of sponsors as they believe this forges a partnership that will create more opportunities for its members to participate in the Oil, Gas, and Energy Sector.
The International Energy Conference and Expo Guyana 2023 lauds the efforts by the Women’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry Guyana and looks forward to participating in future events to be held by the organization.
