It’s time to celebrate the career women who do great work!

9to5Chick, a career development and media company for women in mid- senior-level roles is once again compiling a list of 100 Top career women of the year. The aim of this list is to give visibility and highlight the amazing work and contributions that women make to the Nigerian corporate sector.

According to Glory Edozien (PhD), founder of 9to5Chick: “Corporate Nigerian women do great work but rarely get the visibility they deserve. The aim of this list is to highlight the amazing work and contributions that women make to the Nigerian corporate sector.”

For years women in the corporate space have been doing amazing work: Negotiating huge contacts, executing multi-million dollar projects, mentoring and sponsoring young female professionals, initiating new lines of business for their companies, implementing multi-level transformational projects and much more.

Yet we do not know enough about these women!

Many of them are so focused on doing the work that they have deliberately shunned the spotlight. BUT NO MORE. We want to celebrate and recognise these women so they can become more visible to share their expertise and inspire other women to achieve more.

Nominations have opened and will be closing on the 20th of February so nominate now!
