9to5Chick empowerment networking event for professional women
Two of Nigeria’s foremost women empowerment platforms Inspired by Glory, a personal development hub for women and Her Network, a networking platform for women, recently hosted career women to an evening of networking games, career development conversations and lively debates.
9to5chick is a product of Inspired by Glory dedicated to providing skills for career women to thrive in the workplace. The aim of the event was to create opportunities for professional women to network within and outside their sectors, learn key tips to excel in their careers and discuss issues that impact directly on women in the workplace.
The event which took place at Eve Restaurant in Victoria Island, featured career development tips led by high powered career women such as Peace Hyde, Forbes West Africa Correspondent, who shared tips on networking tips for career women; Chioma Dike, Senior Special Assistant, Lagos State Ministry of Women’s Affairs, who spoke on how women can support each other in the workplace and Toyin Awesu, Head Marketing and Communications, United Capital, who shared visibility tips for career women.
The event also featured conversations, which tackled hot button career issues faced by women such as harassment and discrimination against women in the workplace and surviving in male dominated careers.
Participants at the event commended the organisers for a highly impactful event, with one attendee remarking “it was an evening well-spent, with stimulating conversations” and another noting “I didn’t expect to enjoy myself as much as I did, it was great learning from speakers while meeting and making new friends.”
