As part of amplifying the group’s internal Diversity and Inclusion drive, Appzone will collaborate with the women-focused non-profit on its Leadership By Design Summit — an initiative that seeks to provide a means of addressing and proffering solutions to the most urgent and pressing challenges women face in the fields of Business (Enterprise), Workplace (Career), and Leadership (Politics & Advocacy).
The event will hold on Saturday 27 March at the Four Points By Sheraton Hotel, Oniru, Lagos.
Speaking on the partnership, Group Chief Marketing Officer Appzone, Efosa Aiyevbomwan said: “As a Pan-African brand with a global outlook, we’re excited to partner with Leading Ladies Africa because we understand the importance of cultivating a workforce and society that is truly diverse and inclusive, fostering a continued sense of equity and belonging for women and other minority groups.”
Speaking further, he said: “We are a forward-thinking company that remains committed to ensuring that we have increased female representation across various levels in our organization, as seen by our recent announcement of Omonuwa Olulano as Group Chief Human Resources Officer. We’ll also continue to keep a keen eye out and explore other impactful ways to expand our internal D&I initiatives.”
“We are thrilled to have Appzone partner with us on this initiative,” says the Founder Leading Ladies Africa, Francesca Uriri. The Leadership By Design Summit is an event that seeks to strengthen the business case for diversity, equity, belonging and inclusion — specifically with regards to African women, and also chart a sustainable blueprint that encourages and supports the participation, growth and sustenance of women in the major sectors across the ecosystem.
