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 an event tagged ‘Songversation with Aramide’.
The statement said, “Songversation with Aramide will blend music with lively conversation between musicians and fans. Activities at the event are geared towards motivating women to lead, foster personal development and engineer societal recognition. With scheduled performances from Aramide, Niniola, RicHassani, Praiz and many more, the event will enunciate the need for women to network while encouraging one another to reach for their career goals and aspirations.”
Wema Bank, stressing its commitment to promoting Nigerian women and emphasising their significance in establishing a better society, 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.
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 recalled 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 recognised the works of women such as Temitope Omotayo, Bolanle Banwo, Ada Nduka Oyom, and Dele Tejuosho. Through Tech Chicks, the bank indeed provided a channel for women to share related goals, dialogue and inspire one other.”
We commend Wema Bank for its commitment to promoting Nigerian women and emphasising their significance in establishing a better society and balanced society. Keep up the good work.
