The Dar es Salaam based company which boasts one of the fairest female presence in key management positions, had all of its female staff clad in IWD’s branded pink coloured attire backed by presents shared to male peers.
Led by Head of Human Resources, Stella Kibacha, the female staff members thanked their male peers, management and customers for continuing to support the company in the local market where competition is rife.
“Today is International Women’s Day which is commemorated globally and to mark this day, we have decided to give presents to our male peers because of their continued support in the course of dispensing our duties,” Kibacha said.
She said their decision to award men was also meant to fulfil the notion that women are an engine of the community because they manage not only families but also corporations’ board rooms. “We thanks our male colleagues because without them we cannot be good managers,” the Airtel Tanzania Head of Human Resources added.
Kibacha cherished this year’s IWD slogan of ‘Balance for Better,’ saying it tallies well with Airtel Tanzania’s management philosophy of giving women an opportunity to occupy decision making positions.
“We as Airtel Divas have decided to recognise the crucial role played by our male partners in support of our daily official duties,” she emphasised while pledging that the group is well organised to ensure that both family and corporate lives are contributing towards national development.
