Jamaican Senator Lauds Local Organizers of Leadercast Women

Jamaican Sen. Kamina Johnson-Smith, who is also the country’s foreign affairs and foreign trade minister, lauded the local organizers of Leadercast Women for their commitment to promoting leadership excellence among women across all spheres of society.

Johnson-Smith, speaking at a Leadercast Women event at the Terra Nova Hotel in Kingston on Friday, encouraged the nation’s women to pursue excellence in their chosen endeavors.

“Corporate, politics, law, and medicine are not the only spaces in which to succeed,” she said. “If you want to choose another path to focus on … another side of self, whether it is being the best mother that you wish to be … it takes courage to acknowledge the value you place on that path and to make the changes needed.”

Noting that Jamaica facilitates a liberal amount of freedom, she urged women to take advantage of these.

She said these include the right to vote, own property and make independent decisions, adding that these should be cherished.

For her part, Heneka Watkis Porter, host and creator of the podcast “The Entrepreneurial You” and facilitator of Leadercast Live and Leadercast Women locally, said the anticipated outcome is for participants to be equipped with the knowledge to improve their leadership skills.
