The month of “March” is observed annually as the women’s month, and March 8th commemorates International Women’s Day (IWD).
This year, African Capital Alliance (ACA) marked the IWD 2022 with the theme #BreakTheBias, contributing to the conversation “#BreakingtheBias: Transformational Journey- Professional and Personal Experience” in a roundtable event. The event focused on the ACA women sharing their experiences. More importantly, it presented an opportunity to take stock and re-strategize on how to drive better parity within the communities free of bias, stereotypes, labels, and discrimination, as well as empower others.
The keynote speaker, Dr. Ogechi Adeola, Associate Professor of Marketing and Head of the Department of Operations, Marketing and Information Systems at the Lagos Business School, Pan-Atlantic University, Nigeria, talked about her transformational journey and shared insights on navigating through stereotypes and biases. The event culminated with fun and engaging conversations in Q & A style.
International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global movement dedicated to celebrating progress, raising awareness, and showcasing commitment toward strengthening gender equality and empowerment of all women.
