The week-long celebration of International Women's Day at Flow culminated on Thursday, when the telecommunications giant hosted a High Tea Experience at Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel.

Dubbed 'A gorgeous excuse to catch up with the girls', high tea was used as a mentorship and sharing experience for young women of the company.

The move was part of the telecommunications provider's efforts to acknowledge the work of women at the organisation.

"At Flow, we are an equal opportunity employer; women make up 49 per cent of our workforce. The team wanted to ensure that we engage young women in the company and invited some experienced women in corporate Jamaica to share their stories and help encourage the young ones along their career path," noted Naomi Francis, corporate communications manager at Flow.

Former banker Minna Israel, entrepreneur and academic Dr Marcia Forbes, internal medicine specialist Dr Sara Lawrence, Proven Wealth's CEO Chorvelle Johnson, and education specialist and businesswoman Nicole McLaren Campbell all came together to share with Flow.

"We also honoured four women who make it happen at Flow. It's been a tremendous year for us and we highlighted the hard work of the women at Flow, who have helped to encourage teams at the company to achieve their best," added Francis.

Those honoured were vice-president of Organisational Development Makeba Bennett Easy, director of corporate communications Gail Abrahams, director of Residential Retail Sales Beverly Thompson and senior director of Corporate Communications with Columbus International, Denise Williams.
