Silent Culture Destroys An Organization- Jessica Okwabi

Jessica Okwabi, Retail Director, textiles Ghana Ltd, has urged leaders of various organizations to eradicate the silent culture that is built among staff in order to help improve the growth of their organizations.

Jessica Okwabi underscored the need to build a supportive work environment and said it is essential to change the silent culture that is developing in most organizations.

She expressed her consent during the Females in Tech (FEMITECH) 2024 conference held on March 7 to commemorate the International Women’s Day at the Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT (GI-KACE).

According to her, before she joined her new company the people practiced the culture of silence, where people were not comfortable to speak openly but she has instituted the open-door policy.

Jessica Okwabi stated that to her, feedback is very important because it fosters honest environment and trust.

She gave these answers when she was asked about the challenges she faced as a woman in the working environment and how she dealt with them.

FEMITECH, an annual event commemorating International Women’s Day, celebrates female achievements in technology while showcasing opportunities in ICT for women.
