On Thursday 09th of March 2023, women working at Rwanda Energy Group and its subsidiary companies, EDCL and EUCL, together with the Management celebrated the International Women’s Day.
This celebration was themed “DigitALL, Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality”.
Addressing participants that attended this celebration, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Infrastructure, Eng. Patricie Uwase shared her experience as a woman who is an engineer and is also in the high-level leadership of the country.
Hon. Patricie urged women to exploit opportunities that were put in place by Government of Rwanda to strive for positions of leadership across sectors.
“There is evidence that women are doing a good job, not because they are pushed, but because they are capable” she said.
The CEO of REG, Eng. Ron Weiss, said that women are greatly supporting the company's development despite many responsibilities they have at home.
“We really appreciate the efforts that you’re always making to support the company” he said.
The CEO also called upon women at REG to join management positions as their number is still low at the management level. “There are many researches that are proving that if you have a significant number of women in management, the performance of the company is much better” he added.
Among REG targets for the current year, the CEO mentioned that REG will continue to increase the number of women employees to reach the companies target of 30% and even go beyond to reach 50%. As of today, 24% of employees at REG are women.
