Wema Bank says it is committed to promoting Nigerian women and emphasising their significance in establishing a better society.
As part of its efforts to provide avenues for the progress of women in the society, Wema Bank said in a statement that it would collaborate with Afro-soul queen, Aramide, to host the event on ‘Songversation with Aramide’.
It stated that as part of global efforts to promote women’s rights, equality and justice, the event would focus on the ‘Balance for better’ theme of the 2019 International Women’s Day.
The statement said, “Songversation with Aramide will blend music with lively conversation between musicians and fans. Activities at the event promise to motivate women to take lead, foster personal development and engineer societal recognition.
“With scheduled performances from Aramide, Niniola, Ric Hassani, Praiz and many more, the event will enunciate the need for women to network while encouraging each other to reach for their career goals and aspirations.”
In a bid to always do better, Wema Bank said it was committed to the cause of building an equal society by encouraging young women and revealing new perspectives to them.
“Riding on its corporate motto of ‘With you, all the way,’ the bank champions the initiative that together, we can realise a gender-balanced world,” the statement added.
The bank said that in 2018, it celebrated women in Nigeria’s technology space through Tech Chicks – a platform that highlighted the achievement of young women in the technology industry.
It stated, “Tech Chicks calls attention and recognises the work of women such as Temitope Omotayo, Bolanle Banwo, Ada Nduka Oyom, and Dele Tejuosho. Through Tech Chicks, the bank has provided a channel for women to share related goals, dialogue and inspire each other.”
