The Women in Management, Business and Public Service (WIMBIZ) is set to hold its 14 annual conference and has targeted to empower about 1000 women to aspire for leadership positions.
The conference tagged “Leadership… Step Up and Stand Out!”will take place on November 16th and 17th, 2015 at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The conference will critically look into Nigeria’s growth and development by examining trends, opportunities and best practices in various sectors.
WIMBIZ, whose objectives among other things are to educate and challenge women to maximize their potential, is also tilted towards elevating the attraction and retention of women in workplace.
According to the Chairperson, WIMBIZ, Mrs Osayi Alile, the event will attract over 1000 women, to discuss a broad range of issues centered around a cutting edge theme that is topical and relevant.
She also stressed that, it will identify salient issues concerning women in the workplace and in business, particularly in the areas of leadership capacity building and avenues for networking for growth.
”The theme was selected as a result of the need for women to arise to the challenge of leadership. In the past, women had no input in decision making in Africa but this has improved tremendously overtime.” Alile said
