With the theme "Inspiring young women", these exchanges aim to share the diverse experience of members of the Shell Women’s Network with schoolgirls in the first and final years. The main objective is to motivate them in facing the choices and challenges confronting all young people.
This roadshow started on Friday November 20 at Lycée National Léon Mba and end on December 2nd at Lycée Nelson Mandela. In those flagship schools, the panel of women from Shell Gabon, comprising Lucie Ebozoo (Wells Office Manager Business Support), Armelle Zague (Social Performance and Social Investment Manager), Helene Ngnare Essiane (Human Resources), Nancy Bignoumba Redjao Ep. Malekou (Reservoir engineer), Florence N'dzanga (Business Finance Lead), and Laure Assembe Ovono (Logistics Assistant), spoke to almost 200 schoolgirls by school.
The meetings started off with a safety briefing followed by a run-through of the day’s agenda and a presentation of the objectives of the conferences/debates: “a few years ago, we were sitting where you are and we have had various experiences that we want to share with you, so that one day you too will sit here doing the same thing for other schoolgirls” indicated Lucie.
