Women Leaders’ Code: Affirm your Worth

And what great things I have discovered!

I found I can be whatever I dreamed

I found that I am not shackled by society in any way.

Whatever holds me down exists only in my mind.

Affirm your worth as a woman in leadership. Say out loud the pledge of African Women in Leadership Organisation (AWLO).

Join the women leaders (members) of African Women in Leadership Organisation (AWLO) to affirm your worth. AWLO is committed to raising women leaders – Women of worth, willing to become better for themselves and their community.

The AWLO Pledge

I see me and hundreds of women like me from

all works of life meeting together in friendship and sisterhood to advance our common goals.

I have begun a journey of discovery – a journey to find self.

And what great things I have discovered!

I found I can be whatever I dreamed

I found that I am not shackled by society in any way.

Whatever holds me down exists only in my mind.

I found I could transfer the skills of nurturing my children to nurturing an entire community, and entire nation, If I dared!

I found that my inner strength prevailed against any obstacle that sought to trounce my goals.

I found that I had no need to prove a point to society, but that my womanhood is enough to confound anyone that thought me incompetent.

I found that beauty exists much more potently on the inside – and that it is this inner beauty that fully assuages.

I am a woman in the 21st century.

I stand on the shoulders of the African Women who forged on in the face of gender discrimination

The women who found themselves so they could save their communities.

My journey is unfolding, much more exciting stories await as

I and other African Women write our stories.

I am worthy! I am woman! I am an African Woman!

I am an African Woman of Worth!!

Women Leader’s Code: ‘Women in Leadership Should Pray’ – Dr. Violet Arene

That was the spell, that should be the spell for women at work, and in leadership. Pray!!

– Dr. Violet Arene

Dr. Arene

I recall my last Executive Training before my retirement was to be at the Senior Executive Program (SEP), Columbia. It was already included in the pre-planned calendar for the year. However, on a second look at, prior to implementation, the cost appeared exorbitant to me. I wanted to save money for the organization, so I went to my boss.

I explained to him it was the time to start the process for my participation in that program, but that the cost was exorbitant to me. I told him I sourced for a cheaper program, and would like him to give me money for that cheaper one in order to save money. He looked at me, incisively, said to me “Did we already approve that course?” I said “yes, but…”

He cut in, “It stays!” He took the memo from me, and signed his priceless signature of approval. And jubilant, I left his office, thanking my God for the grace to have such an empathic Boss. “Did we approve it? Then it stays” It was music to my ears, still is!

When the Accounting Department processed my allowance for that big important, it was big. No one they said could understand why my boss was so favorable to me – a woman. What they did not understand was that I prayed everyday for my Boss.

[Tweet “Women that work at hot lofty offices should pray!”]

Women that work at hot lofty offices should pray! Pray for your Bosses, for yourself, and for the organization. I prayed for him, prayed for favor with God and with him. That was the spell, that should be the spell for women at work, and in leadership. Pray!!” – Dr. Violet Arene: Management Consultant, Women Enthusiast, and Leadership Coach.
