6th President and the First Female President of the Republic of Mauritius Dr Ameenah Gurib-Fakim
This week on Womanity-Women in Unity, Dr. Amaleya Goneos-Malka talks to Dr Ameenah Gurib-Fakim, who was the 6th President and the First Female President of the Republic of Mauritius. She takes us through her three lives of scientist, entrepreneur and president.
We talk about some of the attributes she introduced into her term of office, which fuelled her drive to empower youth to embrace science and technology tools and become job creators not job seekers. We differentiate between women in leadership and women in power, with the latter being the catalyst to drive effective change to enable women on the continent.
The number of women in power continues to erode, which means the base line is constantly reset and critical mass cannot be attained to drive meaningful change. Women have a responsibility to be role models and help one another for the betterment of womenkind.
