Alongside the OESAI Annual Conference that took place in Kigali from 25th to 28th August 2019, the G.I.R.L dinner was held – sponsored by ZEP-RE. Women leaders in the insurance industry from across the Eastern and Southern African region gathered to discuss empowerment, mentorship and leadership, among other things, in the industry.

The Managing Director of ZEP-RE, Hope Murera, urged the women present to take up the challenge to enable one another to succeed in their various spaces as women because it is an ultimately rewarding endeavor. She told her own story of the importance of the women who have mentored her throughout her career and further explained that through deliberate actions encouraging females to join the industry, ZEP-RE has been able to achieve gender parity in its ranks with 30% of its senior management team as ladies and as such, was honored to partner with OESAI on the GIRL initiative to support further development of women leaders in the industry.

The Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Rwanda, Dr. Monique Nsanzabaganwa, the guest of honor, also spoke about the role women have played in the leadership of her country and the need to encourage more women to take up leadership in the finance sector.

A humorous and powerful speech - by Hajjat Aphwa Kawaase Sebyala (aka Mama Insurance Africa) - winner of Africa Insurance Hall of Fame award 2019 - was the highlight of the night. She emphasized the importance of confidence, competence, among other ‘Cs’ as tools for excellence in leadership and work, given her decades of experience in the industry.
