Ghana Vodafone CEO Iss The Woman of The Year

Patricia Obo-Nai, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Vodafone Ghana, was honored at the Ghana Women of the Year Honours event for her extensive commitment and support for women in the technology industry.

Patricia was chosen the winner of the Technology category at Glitz Africa’s sixth edition of the award.

The Movenpick Hotel in Accra hosted an awards ceremony to honor 13 Ghanaian indigenous and diaspora women who are making significant contributions to society.

“Your devotion to female empowerment, diversity, and inclusion in the realm of technology is admirable,” her citation reads. We appreciate your efforts to support women in your industry by establishing the Women in Technology platform and the Vodafone Ghana Female Engineering Students Sponsorship Programme (FESSP) to encourage young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). We applaud your efforts to promote and nurture women in the IT sector so that they can contribute meaningfully to our country.”

Patricia expressed her gratitude for the prize by saying, “I truly thank Glitz Africa for this honor, I thank God for this opportunity, and I thank my family for their unwavering support.” I’d like to express my gratitude to my Vodafone Ghana team, some of whom are present to support me.

“I feel that this prize will serve as an inspiration to any young girl who wishes to pursue a career in math or science. I am encouraged if this enables the mothers who have gathered here today to allow their daughters to study the studies.”

On the night of the awards, Ghana’s former Chief Justice, Georgina Theodora Wood, was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award, while the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Jean Adukwei Mensa, was honored with an Excellence in Public Service Award and the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchway, was honored with an Excellence in Governance award.

Other hardworking women were also recognized for their significant accomplishments in their respective fields.

At the Africa Most Respected CEO Awards, held in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, the multi-award-winning CEO was just named Africa’s Most Respected CEO in the Telecommunications category (UAE).
