PRINCE JOEL AND ASSOCIATES felicitates with and congratulates all women on this august occasion of the celebration of International Women’s Day, 2018. We are excited that a day, albeit insufficient, is set aside annually to celebrate the strength and beauty of women, the world over. We are even more excited that, as the years go by, the world has increasingly accorded recognition to women in various spheres of life and has continued to recognise why women matter in society and why they should be afforded equal opportunities for self-expression, development and accomplishment.
It is quite instructive that the theme of this year’s celebration is “Press For Progress”. This is so because we are reminded that, while commendable strides have been taken towards better empowering, educating and giving women a voice, more still needs to be done. The work towards enshrining the principles of gender equality and equity is in all honesty, far from over.
The importance of women cannot be overemphasized and a testament to this truth is the fact that the world has continued to benefit immensely from the astute wisdom and perspective that women bring to the table. Therefore, as we celebrate the uniqueness and beauty of our women, the world over, we must – however we can – contribute our quota towards deconstructing unbeneficial, established male paradigms that are forged from the unfair precepts of patriarchy and further encourage gender parity and increased participation of women in all aspects of societal development.
Let me, on behalf of the staff and management of Prince Joel and Associates, our partners and consultants, again wish every wife, mother, daughter and woman, a fruitful International Women’s Day. Continue to inspire us all!
Dated 8th March, 2018.
