The subject of gender bias in workplaces is a growing conversation not limited to geographical barriers.
The existing statistics in Nigeria show that men are more likely to be employed than women and the various reported cases of gender discrimination in workplaces, create the need for a timely conversation.
On this note, to mark this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD), Freedom Foundation invites you to be a part of this conversation on Overcoming Gender Bias in the Workplace. The conversation will be held virtually on an Instagram Live Session on Friday, March 5th, 2021 by 4 pm.
Conversations will center on smashing existing gender stereotypes and biases and identifying a way forward for gender equality in the workplace. The guest speaker for the session is Bolanle Adekoya, Partner, PWC Capital Markets Accounting, Advisory Services Leader West Africa.
CELEBRATING NIGERIAN WOMEN
Freedom Foundation will also be celebrating 14 notable Nigerian women for their remarkable feat and contributions to Nigerian society as part of our activities to mark International Women’s Day (IWD). This is in line with the theme of this year’s IWD (#ChooseToChallenge), as we seek to challenge Nigerian women and girls to do more to achieve more.
The campaign will run from March 1st – 14th 2021.
