The Federation of Kenya Employers joined other employer organizations from Norway, Tanzania, Ghana, Uganda and Tunisia in the launch of the International Female Future Alumnae (IFFA).

In line with the riding theme “Build Back Better in the Spirit of Female Future,” the Alumnae program seeks to establish international relations and networks for personal growth and increase more women in board and management positions by making the IFFA network available for national and international businesses. In the long run, the network aims to influence gender policies globally.

While launching the program Ms. Kristin Skogen Lund, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Schibsted ASA encouraged the alumnae members to remain open minded to opportunities and challenges in their environment. “Be courageous and believe in yourselves,” she underscored.

The Executive Director, FKE Mrs. Jacqueline Mugo called upon the alumnae to espouse authentic leadership while being passionate about the things that matter and making a difference in these spaces.

Moreover, fifteen (15) participants from FKE’s Cohort thirteen (13) graduated virtually during the launch. Hearty congratulations to all the Female Future Kenya graduates who are now open to join the alumnae program.

The Launch program was facilitated with support from the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprises (NHO) Ms. Tori, the Director of the Secretariat for Private Sector Development at NHO and Ms. Mary Nyaga Female Future Kenya Coordinator alongside the coordinators from Uganda, Tanzania, Tunisia and Ghana.

From Alumni Members

Ms. Angela Anyoti, ABSA Bank, Tanzania

Female Future has expanded my idea of my dream job. Upon going through the Female Future programme, my five key lessons are that I now pursue issues that matter most to me and not everyone else. I have become intentional about what I say yes to. I have also learnt to let go of the fear of taking risks and accepting that change is inevitable. Bonus lesson is that I now accept and seek feedback positively from friends, family and colleagues to enable me steer my life in a meaningful direction and continue to grow in the manner that I want.

Rose Taremwa, Country Office Manager Biodiversity International Uganda

I joined Female Future at a point of transition into a new company. FFP has helped me maintain a focussed career now in my 6th year and heading into a global position in the same company. It has helped me in purposeful networking spiritually, financially and in social areas. It has broadened my thinking into various streams of income. Following my classes I have started farming, put up a retirement policy among others. More so, I now engage in activities that I am passionate about.

Nancy Karimi, Managing Director, Zanaka Consulting, Kenya

Despite the challenges and the uncertainties happening globally, I am glad that we should be able to support each other through this network.

Emma Morrison, General Manager, Joy Brands for the Multimedia Group, Ghana While joining the organization in a new position, with various brands to manage, the Female Future Program was useful in making me an effective leader and driving a sense of purpose for my team. I learnt to delegate and make my teams more responsible in order to create room for work - life balance for me. I am glad that this program has enabled us to know each other and share experiences for bettering ourselves and those we lead. I have learnt that there is always a way to anything, find it! Don’t wait for opportunity to come knocking at your door, go out and give it direction.

Mariann Karisen, CEO, Sarpsborg Naeringsforening, Norway

In order to increase the numbers of women in boards, it is important to have formal board competence and understand the various governance laws in this aspect. I encourage all of us to take up the challenge and contribute towards women empowerment for all the workers around us.
