Spotlight on Women in Leadership: Justice Georgina Theodora Wood




In 2007, Lady Justice Georgina Theodora Wood made history as the first woman to be appointed as Chief Justice in Ghana. Her pioneer role also made her the longest serving Chief Justice in the history of Ghana.


Justice Wood retired from the bench in 2017. Her time in office led to the growth and development of Ghana's judiciary. Her international engagements paved the way for strengthening the judiciary through training, partnerships and the introduction of new modes of adjudication, such as the court-connected alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
