As a celebration of the female drivers on the platform, Taxify held a cocktail event on 8th March, International Women’s day, at Pride Centre, Westlands.
Almost 100 women gathered to enjoy dinner and great music as well as interact with and get to know each other. “I didn’t know we were so many female drivers using the Taxify platform!” said one driver.
The goal of the event was to recognise and appreciate all women using the Taxify application to connect with riders and make a living. A panel of 5 outstanding female drivers were interviewed and had an opportunity to share tips and their best practices with fellow colleagues.
Kanze Dena, TV anchor and journalist from Citizen TV was the main speaker. She encouraged the women to work hard and to support each other. “It is important for us as women to believe in ourselves and to pursue our dreams relentlessly without giving up. Whatever your goal is, press forward towards it and do not stop until you achieve it,” said Kanze.
The women drivers expressed joy and delight in the event. “Nobody has appreciated me today. So I want to thank Taxify for thinking about the female driver and celebrating us in this way,” said Halima Ngei, one of the top female drivers on the Taxify platform.
Unilever Kenya and Taxify provided all the women with gifts to take home. The top 5 female drivers were awarded supermarket shopping vouchers and branded merchandise from Taxify.
“We want to thank all the female drivers on the Taxify platform for their hard work and want to commend them for remaining strong and providing top notch service.” said a Taxify representative at the event.
