Techie charges young men on positive impact
Managing Director of a technology firm, SystemSpecs, John Obaro, has challenged young men to create impactful roles for themselves in society.
He noted that self-evaluation involves proper management of the transition process and more women are increasingly taking on impactful roles in society.
He said this at the Boys to Men Foundation inaugural conference recently held virtually, where he said in today’s world, individual and collective successes were factors of intellectual ability, rather than being gender stereotypes or even physical strength.
The Boys to Men Foundation initiative aims at formulating a policy of action to develop young men into responsible, ethical-thinking adults with integrity in different aspects of life.
According to him, the modern man is aware of the world he is in and not threatened by the power or success of a woman but is ever ready to accept the change and open to new possibilities.
“Today, the traditional role of providing for the family or attaining and occupying certain career heights have evolved beyond traditions. Hence, the more women that are economically empowered, the more tussle for change, power and acceptance in ‘odd fields’,” he said.
He added that men should create enabling systems to de-emphasise gender-based biases, be good models for males and inspire both males and females around them to be good role models to other females.
The keynote speaker and Chairman of Access Bank Group, Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, noted that everyone must first be human to be a good man or woman.
