Entrepreneurs - Ebele Kemery
Many scientific studies conducted over many years comparing men and women, have
found out that women make better business people. This they say can be attributed
to their ability to multi task. And their multi taking ability is a notch higher than that
of men. They are also able negotiators and more likely to maintain healthy business
Yet a very small percentage of spending, either corporate or government, fund
women owned businesses. This anomaly is not conducive for the global economy as
women have for the last 20 years contributed immensely to it. Male chauvinism has
done more bad than good. Women have to be accepted as equals and should be given
a fair treatment.
Countries, their economies and markets have realized their folly as the voice for
equality is loud and clear. The demand for change is stronger and it would do no
good to not consider it. Men have to accept women as equals and acknowledge their
contributions as major players. The woman consumer is well aware of the situation
and it would be bad for many companies if they chose to ignore the plight of women.
And since women are majority of the players in the small industries sector, ignoring
them can cause great damage to the economy. It would lead to loss of possible
employment opportunities thereby depriving the poor of livelihood. This will also
affect the big industries as they are dependent directly or indirectly on the small ones
In spite of the disheartening situation, there are positive vibes in many countries.
There are programs exclusively made for women entrepreneurs, which provide them
funding and advise them on running the business. Though these initiatives have
helped many to achieve success, there are lots more out there who are yet to reap
Many business schools have women specific programs to promote entrepreneurship
among women. Some of these schools have tie ups with networks across many
industries to help accommodate women. And many of these networks are run by
successful business women who counsel their colleagues, mostly men. The tide is
changing and it is only wise to allow it happen.
Ebele Kemery is a member of the Global Fixed Income, Currency & Commodities
(GFICC) Group and a Portfolio manager, is extremely passionate about female
education and believes it to be one of the most powerful and effective tools a girl can
be given in the fight against poverty, disease and malnutrition. Ms. Ebele Kemery
hopes that one day she will create a vehicle capable of spreading education to
underprivileged girls around the world.
