Nov 4, 2021 | 1:00 pm20 Years of Impacting Women
Women in Management, Business and Public Service (WIMBIZ) is a non-governmental organisation with a compelling vision “to be the catalyst that elevates the status and influence of women and their contribution to nation building”. Our vision is borne out of a desire to assist women as they manage the manifold challenges they face in the workplace, enable them to fulfil their potential and equip them to be meaningful contributors to economic development.
Over the last 20 years, we have impacted over 217,000 women through various programs focused on increasing and supporting the success rate of female entrepreneurs and the proportion of women in senior positions in corporate organisations and public service.
This year, WIMBIZ will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary and in recognition of this milestone, we have a series of planned events culminating in our 20th Annual Conference scheduled to hold on the 4th & 5th of November 2021.
The theme “Celebrating Legacy” speaks to the labour, sacrifices and feats of phenomenal Africans, particularly Nigerian Women who have blazed a trail for other women to follow. The Conference will celebrate women who have overcome adversity, broken stereotypes, created enabling environments & created opportunities for other women.
It will also inspire today’s woman to draw from the stories of these ‘Pacesetters’ in envisioning a future for themselves & other women and intentionally build a legacy of collective prosperity & progress.
Over the last 20 years, we have executed our vision by empowering and inspiring women through our Annual Conference which has become the biggest and most inspiring Conference for women in Nigeria
Engage, connect, share and be inspired by over 1770 women from diverse areas of the corporate, business and public sectors, including indigenous and international delegates
The Conference will attract over 50 speakers who will build on the successes of previous Conferences and push the envelope by challenging women to break stereotypes and brave uncharted territories in emerging markets
