NGT supports Women in Business Summit
With the theme: Building Greatness”, the summit celebrated strides made by women in leadership positions across industries and recognised how empowering the next generation of women leaders is essential for building a great society.
Speaking at the event, Brand Manager – Natures Gentle Touch, Mrs. Toyin Adepegba, while commending GLEEHD Foundation for organising the summit, highlighted the important roles women play in the society and how they can immensely contribute to the economy.
The President, WIBLES and Chair, Advisory Board, GLEEHD Foundation (Africa), Chief Mrs. Opral Benson, noted that while more women take the reins at the most reputable institutions on the continent, women are sadly still the most underutilized resources in community development in Africa.
Mrs Benson added that this oversight is the major reason for limiting positive outcomes as women are resilient and focus on quality-of-life issues. It is on this premise that WIBLES is organized as a tool to build the capacities of women to deliver the future and create a platform for women to support other women.
The event was graced by women from various industries in Nigeria. Some of the attendees were former Vice-President, World Bank, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili; United States Consular General, Mrs Dehab Ghebreab, Mrs. Toyin Saraki, Founder Wellbeing Foundation; Nollywood actress, TV host and Cosmetologist, Taiwo Ajayi-Lycett; philosopher and writer, Prof. Sophie Oluwole; Chief Executive Officer, Flying Doctors, Dr. Ola Orekurin among others.
