New Faces, New Voices – Nigeria organises a one-day in-person Northern Women Economic Empowerment Summit in Kano State on Sunday November 28, 2021. The aim of the summit is to prepare women entrepreneurs to face post Covid-19 businesses’ challenges.
The theme of the summit is “Empowering Women Entrepreneurs: A Panacea for Poverty Reduction and Job-Creation in Northwest Nigeria.”
Globally, there are varying agitations for women empowerment in businesses.
Similar aspirations are fervently yearned for, in seeing greater representation of women in politics, a key barometer that would create a gateway to women developments in all spheres of lives.
It is believed that if women are to be granted at least 30% representation in politics, most of their aspirations would come to fruition, including economic empowerment.
In Nigeria, a number of women empowerment plans have been designed on exports, renewable energy, entrepreneurship, etc. with marginal records of implementations and actualisation.
