Lagos, MD, November 18, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Apostles in the Marketplace, an organization with the mission to raise change agents who will facilitate the emergence of a new Nigeria, has finalised plans to host the November Series with the theme “Balancing career and family. The event is solely dedicated to educating women who desire career growth while thriving in the home front. The Series also seek to empower women that face severe challenges in the workplace due to gender discrimination, sexual exploitation and harassment.
As the world advances to rise and speak up for women, Nigeria also will not be left behind in this movement as AiMP has risen up to the challenge of empowering women by giving them the required platform to make their voices heard, helping women succeed in places where gender discrimination has held them bound for several years.
The women and family event will empower women entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners to explore opportunities in accessing small and medium scale grants from Nigeria’s foremost industrial financial organization - the Bank of Industry. According to the UN Women organization, when more women work, economies grow. An increase in female labour force participation—or a reduction in the gap between women and men’s labour force participation results in faster economic growth. Thus this event presents itself as all rounded one to give women opportunities to reposition themselves, fulfill their call as mothers, life givers and business minded people.
Billed to speak on these issues are women whose professional ethics and walk with God has distinguished them in the marketplace. They include, Joke Silva- award winning actress, who is also a Co-Founder at Lufodo Productions and CEO of Malete Film Village in Kwara State. From the financial sector, Ruby Onwudiwe who serves as Head Private Banking at Stanbic IBTC Bank will be on the panel to speak on how women can diligently make their finances work for them. To address the need for Education and Social transformation in the lives of women, Alero Ayida–Otobo CEO Education Hub and Co-Founder, Teach for Nigeria will be in attendance. Others include Head of Strategy Africa Capital Alliance Uwa Osa-Oboh, Chairman, Save our Women and Girls Foundation- Unyime Ivy-King and Toyin Adeniji Executive Director SME Sector at Bank of Industry.
