IWD: Colgate supports FG to celebrate Nigerian women
Recognising women as being an integral part of the society, Colgate stepped out recently to lend support to the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development’s programme in commemoration of this year’s International Women’s Day with the theme, #ChooseToChallenge, in Abuja.
The National policy Dialogue in celebration of the International Women’s Day in Abuja was held at Transcorp Hilton with the theme, “Women in Leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”.
The event was made whole with the participation of women in the global space who have made strong impact to inspire other women through their actions and achievements, such as the former President of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, UNAIDS Executive Director, Ms. Winnie Byanyima and so on.
According to the Public Relations Manager, Tolaram Group, Omotayo Abiodun, who stated that the impact of women towards societal development cannot be over-emphasised, she added that the brand aligns passionately with the vision of the Ministry of Women Affairs as it celebrates and encourages Nigerian women to challenge the status quo and reach for the skies.
As part of plans to celebrate women, Colgate partnered with the Ministry of women Affairs in seven states, Kwara, Lagos, Oyo, Ondo, Ogun, Edo and Abuja and took an active part in their IWD programs with the main objective to further encourage and sensitize all the women present to maintain healthy oral hygiene practices alongside their families.
Speaking, Honourable Minister, Federal Ministry of women affairs and social development, Dame Pauline Tallen, celebrated partners, participants, Nigerian women, and all women doing great exploits across the globe. She stated that women deserve equal right to play and attain the highest level of their dreams without the fear of deliberate subjugation at any level. The Colgate dental check-up camp was positioned just by the hall at all the seven locations to proffer free basic oral consultation/screening to all participants at the program. After consultation, everyone received samples of the product including the special dignitaries who were presented with special dental kits, including the Colgate Maximum Cavity Protection Toothpaste.
The brand aims at reaching out to as many women as possible across the nation before the end of the year through their dental check-up exercise which is present in nine locations across Nigeria and open to the public six days a week.
