Three leaders of the International Organization of Employers (IOE) member federations in Africa, Miriem Bensaleh, president of CGEM (Morocco), Ouided Bouchamoui, president of UTICA (Tunisia) and Jacqueline Mugo, executive director of the Federation of Kenya Employers feature in the list of the Top 50 Most Influential African Women in the World, published by leading African publication Jeune Afrique this week.
Noting the growing number of influential women on the continent, Jeune Afrique honors the qualities of the IOE member laureates, including their expertise, tireless dedication, strength of conviction and determination. Also highlighted is the respect these women command as they undertake their mission to foster an enabling environment for business and entrepreneurship.
“Promoting women’s empowerment is a key area of the IOE’s work and we are very proud to have Bensalah, Bouchamoui and Mugo in key roles in our member organizations in their countries,” said IOE Secretary General Brent Wilton as he extended his congratulations to the three business leaders. “We are also privileged to have Jacqueline Mugo on the IOE Management Board, as well as leading, in her role as secretary general, the IOE’s 42 African members that make up Business Africa.”
