Vlisco Women’s Month (VWM), launched nine years ago, is an annual campaign to honour the outstanding achievements of Ghanaian women who are contributing positively in inspiring future female leaders to follow their career paths.
Every year, in the month of March, Vlisco supports the female agenda through its commitment to empowering women and helping them to realise their true potential.
The theme for this year’s celebration is ‘Unite for Better’ which is a core of Vlisco’s mandate of bringing together a community of women leaders who are united in supporting other women to achieve a common goal.
