By Modupe Gbadeyanka
Former chairman of First Bank, Mrs Ibukun Awosika, has charged women at DLM Capital Group to always endeavour to support each other as this would be beneficial to them and the organisation.
Mrs Awosika said this at a one-day seminar organised by the financial institution in commemoration of International Women’s Day 2022.
She also tasked them to change the narrative of being stereotyped or limiting themselves because they are women or because society has compelled them to do.
“Women need to continually be their own biggest fans and not tear each other down,” she said stated at the virtual session attended by several persons.
The 2022 IWD was themed Break the Bias and the development finance institution marked the day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, while also marking a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.
Also commenting during the session, Head of Operations, DLM Capital Group, Kelechi Eke, urged the women to use the opportunity to reflect and start some deep conversations, introspection and empathy towards the real issues and plights that women in the workforce face.
