Women Who Are Interested In Science Should Be Supported

The Chief Executive Officer of Bui Power Authority, Mr Samuel Kofi Dzamesi, has underscored the need for relevant stakeholders to provide the necessary support to make the many dreams of women who are interested in science and technology to materialise.

He said women needed to be trained to be abreast of changing trends in the world and working environments, while emphasising that countries that had made commitments in utilising the potential of youth particularly women were reaping the full merits


He said Ghana would be making a step towards breaking the glass ceiling in the field of science and technology if it invested in scaling up the potential of its youth, especially, the girl child.

"The bulk of the ideas for scaling up renewable energy deployment are hidden in some of the students here and these ideas could be solutions that the country, and indeed the world, needs in the fight against Climate Change."
