The executive director of the technical department at the National Port Authority or NPA, Mrs. Celia Cuffy Brown, has challenged women of the NPA to develop and maintain a sense of purpose at work. She encouraged the women to work together in unity and uplift, rather than undermine one another.
Mrs. Brown spoke over the weekend during retreat and subsequent installation of officers of the National Port Authority Women Union (NAPAWU) held at a local entertainment center in Parker Corner, Brewerville City, Monsterrado County.
She told the women that as they leave their various homes for work, they go with a mindset to make a difference, and to put God first in all they do, as well as being careful with whom they may hurt.
In response, the president-elect for NAPAWU, Madam Comfort Freeman, said the organization is all about uniting and empowering women of the NPA to work with their male counterparts.
The chaplain-elect Madam Vera C. Hood, said she was overwhelmed because it was the first of its kind, and expressed confidence the union would achieve its objectives and move forward. Also speaking, the president of the Dork Workers Union of Liberia, Jackie N. Doe, expressed joy to see the women coming together, and vowed to remain working with the group.
