IWOW leadership network to hold annual global possibilities summit (GPS)
The Inspired Women of Worth (IWOW) Leadership Network will hold its 10th annual and first virtual conference from March 25th to 26th. In typical nature as with other IWOW events, this year’s conference has a distinct theme that will drive all the events and conversations during the 2-day conference and the theme is ‘Are You the Woman for the Job?’
Launched in 2010 to inspire, connect and empower women to live fully and with purpose, the network has since expanded to incorporate a leadership academy, which in its inaugural year, graduated 112 outstanding, aspiring, emerging, and advanced female leaders.
The IWOW GPS 2021 theme was carefully chosen not only for the global reverberations created by the emphatic statement ‘I Am The Woman For The Job’ made by Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala during her campaign launch video for the same position, but due to its relevance to the conscious daily choices that more women must begin to make in order to create the good change and impact that women are intrinsically equipped to create. The theme is also firmly aligned with the International Women’s Day 2021 theme, #ChooseToChallenge.
Past edition themes of the GPS attended by a global audience of female career professionals, entrepreneurs, high-net-worth individuals, and an aspirational audience include “No Glass Ceilings’, ‘It’s ShowTime’, and ‘Unleash the Extraordinary’. From statements made by the leadership of the network and the alumni, it is evident that this 10th-anniversary conference will not only be celebratory but transformational for the network, members and attendees.
IWOW founder, Udo Okonjo, says, “There is a need for more positive female leaders to rise into visible leadership. The more role models our sons and daughters see will create the incredible possibilities that would lead to an impacted society in which especially the more vulnerable than women typically think about are helped in a sustainable manner. The women who should attend this conference must pledge to remind themselves that they are worth every thinkable dream of theirs, and must consistently build capacity and competence to be the best. In Eleanor Roosevelt’s words, “Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission.”
Bioye Davies, IWOW Trustee, and Lead, Event Organizing Committee said, “This Summit is for any woman who is ready to take on or is already taking on the challenge of becoming the best version of herself. With a wide array of speakers who have excelled in diverse backgrounds, the conversations will be inspirational and insightful with actionable steps. The summit provides an opportunity for women of all ages to hear the stories of what is working and what has not worked for high achieving men and women and use this knowledge to refine their plan to becoming the woman for the job”.
The event lineup includes a founder’s event on the evening of March 25th and several thought-provoking sessions on the 26th covering topics such as digital adoption and the road to a new reality, leading in uncertain times, challenge your inner and outer critics to become the woman for the job, don’t just network, build relationships.
