IWD: 15 women in PR hosted to roundtable dinner
In commemoration of this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD), The Table NG, a Public Relations (PR) and Communications community in collaboration with Robert Taylor Media, hosted a roundtable dinner for 15 women in PR in Lagos.
Over the years, the entire communications industry has grown in leaps and bounds with more opportunities for creative expression.
One of the aims of the roundtable gathering was for females in the industry to connect and share with colleagues their ideas and commitments to helping the next generation of female communications professionals navigate their journey.
During the conversation, which focused on ‘The Role of Female Mentorship and Collaboration in the Growth of the Communications Industry’ following the theme – Embracing Equity – Founder, Robert Taylor Media, Bukola George-Taylor, shared so much information on her personal experience with mentorship in her career journey.
She spoke extensively on the importance of embracing collaborations over competition and the relevance of peer mentorship in achieving set goals.
She advised the participants never to dim their light as females or consider mediocrity but to deliver excellence in every task or project they are involved in.
“If you are a successful woman, you owe it to the universe to pull up another woman, lend your voice, lend your ears, lend the lessons from your stories and experiences, collaboration wins over competition any day,” she said.
