As part of Aluko & Oyebode’s celebration of International Women’s Day, we dedicated our monthly learning session to Women, with the theme: “Women in Changing Times: Passion, Career, Growth and Wealth Creation.” The event was held on Thursday, 28th March 2019. The event was graced by the presence of notable industry leaders which includes:

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is #BalanceforBetter and it focuses on innovative ways in which we can advance gender equality and the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure.
The speakers emphasised on the vital role women play in the business environment and their significant place in the society. They also shared their personal experience on how women could better maximise their opportunities.
