“We celebrate all women of our great institution and we recognize your efforts in making this Bank what it is today.”

The Legal Counsel of the Bank, Mrs Jesse Jacintho, debunked the assertion that women are their own enemies.

She called for collaboration and sharing of information among women especially between female supervisors and their subordinates to promote harmony in the workplace.
