Directory of Female Senior Members in CSIR Launched

The Directory of Female Senior Members in CSIR was an initiative of the Deputy Director General of the CSIR (DDG), Prof. (Mrs) RoseEmma Mamaa Entsuah- Mensah (FGA). This initiative commenced in 2010 with a workshop held for all senior female members of the CSIR to explore ways of improving their output and create a platform for networking, and followed up with a circulation of a template designed by the authors of the Directory for completion by the senior members within CSIR. Upon completion of the Directory, it was understood that such an important document which would support the visibility and networking of female seniors members deserved to be properly launched.

As such, an adhoc committee was set up to plan and execute the launching of the Directory.

The Directory of Female Senior Members in CSIR, Ghana was successfully launched on Tuesday, 13th December at CSIR-STEPRI. The theme for the launch was “Enhancing Visibility of Females in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM): Pursuing the CSIR Agenda.”

The program was attended by 65 registered participants, most of whom were females. Ministries represented included the Ministry of Trade and Industry, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Youth and Sport and Ministry of Roads and Highways. The Ghanaian Women in Agricultural Research and Development (GhaWARD) was also well represented by the interim executives and members from CSIR institutes and the University of Ghana. CSIR institutes represented were CSIR – INSTI, CSIR – ARI, CSIR – WRI, CSIR – FRI, CSIR – STEPRI, CSIR – OPRI, CSIR – IIR, CSIR – BRRI.
