The AfriWomen is celebrating this year’s international Women’s Day by further uplifting the social, political, cultural and economic contribution of women in history, as well as a call to action to advocate for gender equity and equality.
The AfriWomen female staff.
In commemoration of this year’s theme #EmbraceEquity, we want to do more in how we are promoting and embracing equity by expanding our support network group beyond grassroot women and communities.
The AfriWomen has over 600 past and present adult literacy students who are already thriving in the grassroot support network group. These women meet weekly and monthly as part of their adult literacy classes and cooperative meetings.
We have been discussing our plans with diverse leaders and cooperate bodies who can collaborate with us to facilitate our work network of support services to embraces professional women of support services to women in this group.
Our founder, Adebukola Oso discussed with Dr. Aderonke Sakpere from the computer science department of the University of Ibadan.
On March 19, with Dr. Sakpere as a guest speaker, the AfriWomen hosted a zoom interactive section themed “Break the Barrier, Take the Technology.” In this gathering of over 70 women, we ignited the conversation and raised awareness of inequities faced by women in the science, technology, engineering (STEM) field.
Sharing this space for enrichment, we tckled challenges such as non-inclusive practiced that caused under representation in the workplace and political arena.
The goal of the AfriWomen Support Network Group is to create a network of women starting from Ibadan in Oyo state, Nigeria. The group will intentionally facilitate women to connect, feel safe to share experiences, offer advice and strategies, encourage one another to want more in life journey, to be more and celebrate each other’s success.
