On the 22nd of December 2016, the We Rise Initiative will be hosting its inaugural Elevate Her conference, with the aim of empowering the next generation of female leaders. The subtitle for this year’s event is “how to embrace your power and use it for the common good” and this topic will be referenced through a series of professional workshops, run by some of Nigeria’s most knowledgeable, successful and civically engaged women. The prevalence of women’s oppression is rife in Nigerian society today and at We Rise, we believe that breaking barriers for the next generation of female leaders begins now.
Keynote Speaker: Mrs. Bisi Adeleye-Fayemi
Facilitators: Ms. Diana Johnson, Ms. Fisayo Longe, Ms. Nimi Akinkugbe, Ms. Seun Awolowo
