Who is PWC - Kate Nnena-Ibemgbo

Meet International PWC Member - Kate Nnena-Ibemgbo

Getting to being a member of PWC to me is like an icing on the otherwise delicious cake, it has made me a better and more determined person. My interactions from my first conference in New Orleans and subsequent conferences, friendships and relationships that have grown from that one singular contact have made me realize that there is a whole world of possibilities within and outside of ATC. It is my ardent hope and desire that PWC grows and spills over to the African continent, so that the sisterhood if I may call it that may be stronger and all encompassing. We the women Controllers in Nigeria and indeed Africa as a whole needs that continuous moral boost to make us get to the apex of our career and contribute positively to the growth of the aviation sector in Africa and world.
