The SRC Women's Commission serves as a beacon of change within the revered grounds of our institution at a time when gender equality and parity are vital. The commission's main goal is to promote equality and empowerment while working to create a varied, secure, and inclusive campus environment for women.

The commission set out on a commendable mission to speak up for women's right and give their difficulties and worries a loud voice. This commission has made substantial progress toward achieving its goals through a number of carefully planned policies, programs, and initiatives.

KNUST, as an esteemed institution of higher learning, has consistently embraced diversity. It has dedicated itself to nurturing its female populace, providing them with opportunities to learn, grow, and receive mentorship, empowering them to excel in any path they choose to follow.

One remarkable initiative by the Women's Commission in pursuit of these goals was the AKETASIA SUMMIT. Held under the compelling theme, The KNUST Woman, Her Business, Her Leadership, and Her Politics, this summit served as a platform for renowned female personalities who have achieved excellence in the fields of business, leadership, and politics to share their inspirational journeys.

Throughout the summit, these accomplished women shared their experiences, revealing the challenges they faced and the successes they achieved while pursuing their dreams. Their stories were a testament to the power of determination, resilience, and unyielding ambition. More importantly, they served as guiding lights for young women, encouraging them to boldly chase their dreams and aspirations.

The AKETASIA SUMMIT organized by the Women's Commission, also created an environment for networking and mentorship. It connected female students with role models who have shattered glass ceilings and achieved greatness in their respective fields. This networking opportunity has proven to be invaluable, helping to bridge the gap between aspiration and achievement.

As the commission continues to champion and advocate for gender equity, parity, and inclusivity, the university stands as a shining example of what can be achieved when all these are at the forefront of education.
