Groups partner on gender parity, inclusion
Appzone Group, Sub-Saharan Africa’s FinTech Software Company has partnered with Leading Ladies Africa, a women’s empowerment non-profit, to strengthen the continued push for gender equality, parity, and inclusion for African women.
As part of amplifying the group’s internal diversity and inclusion drive, Appzone will collaborate with the women-focused non-profit Leadership By Design Summit, an initiative that seeks to address and proffer solutions to the most urgent and pressing challenges women face in business, workplace, and leadership.
The event holds tomorrow, March 27 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 are excited to partner 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.”
Founder Leading Ladies Africa, Francesca Uriri, said: “We are thrilled to have Appzone partner with us on this initiative. 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. We are extremely grateful and glad that Appzone is partnering with us to bring that vision to light.”
