Women In Corporate Boards: Shattering The Glass Ceiling Of African Companies

On the first day of the 7th edition of the AFRICA CEO FORUM taking place in Kigali, distinguished female speakers discussed ways of breaking barriers that are limiting the number of women counterparts on the corporate boards of African companies. Under its “Women in Business” initiative, the AFRICA CEO FORUM takes action every year to make the advancement of female leadership a key priority; the forum engages and unites the entire business community around a clear mission: to significantly advance the feminization of top decision-making positions in African companies. This year’s “Women in Business” initiative was organized in partnership with Globacom and to open the discussion was Bella Disu, the organization’s Executive Vice Chairperson who was the keynote speaker.

Indiana Contractor Upgrades Equipment and Dealer Relationship

As his landscaping business grew, Andy Mulder knew it was time to upgrade his machine to something bigger and more productive. Mulder, owner and operator of Mulder Maintenance and Services of Hebron, Ind., turned to his partner of four years, McCann Industries of Merrillville, Ind. Jim McCann (L), president of McCann Industries, and Andy Mulder, owner of Mulder Maintenance and Services. McCann had sold him his first piece of equipment — a Takeuchi TL10V2 track loader. Next, he bought a TB230 mini-excavator, and the following year, McCann helped him upgrade to a Takeuchi TB240 mini-excavator. “We have purchased other machines from McCann Industries,” said Mulder. “I went to them and told them I was really interested in the Engcon Tiltrotator. They went through the process of becoming an Engcon dealer and then getting it set up on my machine.” Engcon’s EC204 Tiltrotator — sometimes described as “the ‘wrist’ between the arm of the machine and the tool at the end” — was designed for 2- to 4-ton excavators. The device has a 45-degree tilt angle and can rotate 360 degrees. It can be fitted with an integrated grab and many other hydraulic...

Bring a Loupe A 1960s Rolex Oyster Perpetual Ref. 1002, An Abercrombie & Fitch Solunar, And An Omega Chronostop Urban Jürgensen is known for their mastery of details, a distinction particularly well suited for the realm of haute horology. Grenage dials and precious metals typify the Jürgensen range, with a history of roughly 400 years transforming the Danish watch and clock making industry.  After all that time, the One collection is the first range of true sports watches in stainless steel from Urban Jürgensen. Not a single straight line is present on the seven-piece case that features satin brushed and mirror polished finishing. The Jürgensen-developed P5 movement features a subtle single bit of gold on the watch: a rotor with a Jürgensen shield in gold accompanied by 22ct solid gold weights. At 41mm, it’s decidedly sporty, and a 120 meter water resistance answers any questions as to whether or not the One watches can walk the walk.  The stainless bracelet is what really puts this watch in the same space as such lauded company as watches like the Royal Oak and Nautilus. Urban Jürgensen calls the bracelet’s design a “double shape pointed oval construction,̶...
