Today, we commemorated the #InternationalWomensday with an event at our rooftop, Headquarters. This event is spearheaded by the women in Y’ello through the way initiative targeted at empowering women in MTN. Present at the event to cheer the women up were the execs, who took turns to advise and celebrate the women.
The keynote speaker Bolaji Balogun is the Chief Executive Officer at Chapel Hill Denham and CIO, Nigeria Infrastructure Debt Fund.
Mr Bolaji shared his thoughts on this year’s IWD theme, Each for Equal, through insightful stats and recommendations. He further spoke on the need for women inclusion in the various parastatals, equal education for women and mentorship.
MR Bolaji also spoke on the need to push the political sphere to create an environment where there is more inclusivity. He also identified the need to have men in the room who make key decisions, which can affect certain changes in the favour of women in an organization and beyond. The event ended with light refreshment, music and lots of fun.
