VENDREDI 12 MARS 2021 BIZWEEK ÉDITION 333 The Women in Criminal Justice Conference brought women leaders from across Africa together to discuss a wide range of topics and to network as women leaders in a predominantly male field. A followup event was due to be held in Tanzania in early 2021, but was moved online following the COVID-19 crisis. This allowed participants from Mauritius, South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania and the UK to join in a COVID-safe way to continue the discussions and networking. This underlined the determination of women leaders everywhere to not let the global INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY pandemic stand in the way of increased cooperation in the fight against crime. The event saw the participation of women experts and leaders to discuss and debate a diverse range of topics including the illegal wildlife trade, sexploitation, illicit finance and the role of the regulator, international cooperation, mentorship, travel sex offenders, counter terrorism and financial crime. From Mauritius, the conference heard presentations from the Bank of Mauritius (BoM), the Mauritius Revenue Authority (MRA), the Brigade Pour La Protection des Mineurs, the Independent DEBRIEF 2nd Edition of the Women in Criminal Justice Conference On 8 and 9 March, the British High Commission in Mauritius supported the virtual hosting of a ground-breaking conference bringing together women leaders from across the Criminal Justice profession to celebrate the achievements and extensive contribution of women leaders in Criminal Justice in Africa, the UK and around the world. This follows on from a successful conference hosted in London in February 2020 Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. Discussions highlighted the significant links between all these areas, the financial aspects of sexploitation and IWT, the role of regulators and beneficial ownership transparency in relation to tackling corruption. The importance of regional collaboration was a recurring theme with participants agreeing that since criminals don’t respect national borders the only way to tackle transnational crime and protect the citizens in all states is to secure cross border assistance. Révision de la notation de crédit de la MCB par Moody’s Investors Service Le 4 mars dernier, l’agence Moody’s a revu à la baisse la notation d’émetteur à long terme du gouvernement mauricien, de Baa1 à Baa2 et a maintenu une perspective négative. En conséquent, la notation de dépôt bancaire à long terme et d’émetteur de la MCB Ltd a été revue, de Baa2 à Baa3, avec une perspective négative. La révision de cette notation est principalement liée au fait que Moody’s a revu à la baisse le score du profil macroéconomique de Maurice de « Moderate- » à « Weak + » afin de refléter le contexte opérationnel et fiscal de plus en plus difficile. La MCB demeure classée « investment-grade » par Moody’s et reste l’une des rares institutions financières ainsi notée en Afrique subsaharienne. Le programme du Rotary « Partners for a Malaria-Free Zambia » reçoit 6 millions de dollars Pour contribuer à mettre fin à une des causes majeures de maladie et de décès en Zambie, une initiative dirigée par les Rotary clubs vise à sauver et à améliorer des vies en donnant au personnel de santé les moyens de tester, de diagnostiquer et de traiter le paludisme qui se propage par les piqûres de moustiques infectés, touche de manière disproportionnée les enfants de moins de cinq ans et les femmes enceintes des populations rurales. Pour contribuer à l’éradication du paludisme en Zambie, la Fondation Rotary, World Vision USA et la Fondation Bill & Melinda Gates verseront chacune 2 millions de dollars au programme « Partners for a Malaria-Free Zambia » dirigé par des Rotary clubs. Ce programme de 6 millions de dollars permettra d’ajouter 2 500 agents de santé au système de santé national zambien, ce qui permettra de diagnostiquer et de traiter efficacement le paludisme chez plus de 1,3 millions de personnes dans dix des districts les plus touchés des provinces du centre et de Muchinga. L’égalité, une réalité pour MC Vision/CANAL+ Maurice Chez MC Vision, la main d’œuvre féminine constitue 45%, et est dirigé de main de maître par une femme, Ghislaine Tchibozo, la CEO. L’entreprise compte également des femmes à la tête de quatre autres départements. A l’occasion de la Journée mondiale de la femme, l’entreprise a tenu à partager l’importance de cette célébration pour elle. « Nous sommes très fiers de faire partie des entreprises qui prônent l’égalité professionnelle, qui n’est pas seulement un vain mot chez MC Vision, mais une réalité. Un métier n’a pas de genre. Les seules qualités qui sont prises en compte durant les recrutements sont la rigueur, le dynamisme, l’esprit d’équipe, la passion, la force de proposition, la polyvalence et l’adaptabilité, entre autres. Tous nos employés, de profils divers, collaborent dans le respect de l’autre, et c’est ce qui fait le succès de MC Vision à tous les niveaux », explique Anusha Radha Balrup, Assistant HR Manager.
