Starting at 5:30am, the walk began from the Digicel Port Moresby Headquarter in Gordan, following the route to SP Brewery, up onto Poreporena Freeway, around the ring-road to Ela Beach.
This was organised by the Women in Leadership League - a vehicle for driving the recognition of high performing women and women leaders in Digicel.
According to President Gou Kere, the walk is the first activity of the year and had a good turnout.
“The theme this month is surrounded around fitness and health so we organised all departments in Port Moresby to basically walk together, share food and water. We also have teams in the regions participating – Kokopo team also walked this morning, Mt Hagen team did Zumba. Alotau and Lae did their walkathons last week,” Kere said.
Kere furthered that despite being a female community, WILL also recognises that men need to be empowered to empower women.
“We women cannot alone do these leadership thing, empower and enhancing others on our own. In order to build a better group of women and better growth around women, we need to involve men as well. So we included a program that will celebrate the existence of men and recognise what they do to us women. In November – we celebrate awareness on men cancer – Maus gras campaign – in accordance with what cancer foundation.”
