Akofa Atawa Dakwa: Mentoring has played a critical role in my career

Speaking on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (1 November), Dakwa attributed his level of achievement so far to mentorship

The chief risk officer at Bank of Africa, Akofa Atawa Dakwa, has emphasised the need for the youth to undergo mentorship as part of their career development.

Mentorship is a relationship between two people where the mentor provides advice and guidance to their mentee to help them grow, learn, and develop their career or aspiration.

Speaking on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (1 November), Dakwa attributed her level of achievement so far to the kind of mentorship she received.

“I would say that I am here today because of all the mentors I have had, aside from my mentors and role models, my former MD, Kobby Andah has been my greatest mentor and boss.”

“So, I think what mentoring does for you is to help you believe in yourself, to believe that whatever you set your eyes on, you can and get that positive modelling,” she said.

“… I think mentoring has really helped boost my self-confidence a lot …” Dakwa added.
