Gender Solidarity and the Legal Profession: The Role of M.A.L.E Allies in Ghana

On Wednesday, 15 June, IAWL brings a roundtable discussion exploring the role of men as allies in the quest for gender equality.


Moderated by Esine Okudzeto, Deputy Managing Partner at Sena Chambers, we will be joined by: Justice Jones V.M. Dotse, Justice Gertrude Torkornoo, Ms. Sheila Minkah-Premo, Mr. David Ofosu-Dorte, Ms. Maame Yaa Mensa-Bonsu, with special appearances from Ms. Isabel Boaten and Ms. Adelaide Benneh Prempeh.


The event, organized in collaboration with the Ghana Bar Association (GBA), the GBA Women's Forum, and with support from AB & David Africa, Bentsi-Enchill, Letsa & Ankomah, ENS Ghana, and CDD Ghana, will bring together leaders within the legal and judicial sectors to explore a series of questions and examine the social, cultural, and institutional norms and practices that create gender inequality within the legal profession. The goal of this event is to provide collective and actionable solutions to addressing gender inequity within the profession and to take a #GenderSolidarity pledge toward achieving UN Sustainable Development Goals #5 (gender equality) and #16 (peace, justice, and strong institutions) as well as African Union Agenda 2063 goal #17 (gender equality).


At IAWL, we believe that when women and men work in unity, and in solidarity, we can achieve gender equality. We started the Men Advocates in Law for Equality (M.A.L.E) Allies network to ignite individual and organizational transformation towards gender equality in the legal profession.


The event will be held on Wednesday, 15 June 2022, 1-2:30 pm, at the Accra Law Court Complex Auditorium. We kindly ask that you RSVP by Sunday, 12 June 2022.
