Her summit urges women to embrace power of community
Women from diverse sectors gathered recently to learn and interact during the first Her Summit presented by the global inspirational and lifestyle platform, Her Network.
Themed, ‘The Power of Community, the panel sessions at the event had diverse experienced female professionals and entrepreneurs that have led admirable careers and built sustainable businesses. They shared their impact stories and career growth with the attendees.
Each session was distinctive; touching on entrepreneurship, technology, inclusion, career, gender diversity, beauty and collaboration.
One of the recurring words shared by the speakers was that constant development is imperative for better performance and confidence.
Speaking at the event, founder, Her Network, Nkem Onwudiwe, said the theme was inspired by the collective belief at Her Network that while many people understand the value of belonging to a community, a lot of others don’t realise how powerful a community could be if it’s comprised of the right people with the right values, goals, and motives.
“Now, more than ever, women genuinely need to not just come together but also lean in and understand that no woman is an island, and we all need one another to thrive. That’s the key message I want everyone to take away from this,” she said. Singer and songwriter, Kaline, entertained the guests with a brief music performance.
The guests also connected, networked, listened to a health and wellness conversation by Mutti; learned about Real Estate from Omalicha by Middlechase and took affirmative photos in front of the branded photo walls of affirmation.
