NCC leads as Women of Excellence awards holds tomorrow
All is now set for the maiden edition of the “Woman of Excellence” award, jointly hosted by E-Business Life Communication Limited and TECHlife Media & Communications Limited, with support from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).
The event, tagged: “An Evening with Women of Excellence”, scheduled to hold at Orchid Hotels, Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria, would play host to women that have distinguished themselves in various sectors, also to organisations and individuals that have supported women development and growth.
Speaking on the event, the Publisher and CEO of eBusiness Life Communication Limited, Mrs. Ufuoma Emouphedaro, noted: “The Award is geared at identifying women that have excelled in the various sectors of the Nigerian economy, applauding their efforts and feats, and honouring them with the
“Woman of Excellence” award to encourage them to do more.”
She further noted that organisations that have been at the forefront of encouraging women to attain greater heights would also be recognised during the Night of Awards.
In her position, the CEO of TECHlife Media and Communications Limited, Ugochi Emmanuel explained that the Awardees for the maiden edition were carefully chosen from a lineup of women doing great things in the various sectors of the economy. She noted that in the coming awards, more women will be recognized. “We know that a whole lot of women are doing great things in the different sectors of our economy. In the past few years, the numbers of women entrepreneurs and women that have climbed the professional ladders to the peak have increased, and we are expecting more to join. This is the essence of the Awards, to tell them that they are appreciated and to encourage them to do more in terms of dedication to their duties and raising younger versions of themselves.”
The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) will lead other corporate organisations to attend the event. The regulator has been an ardent supporter of women growth in corporate organisations and self-development.
The Evening of Awards, coincidentally follows with the 2023 International Women’s month celebration tagged #BreaktheBias, which tends to further throw light on the inputs of women in the development and growth of Nigeria’s socio-economic wellbeing, while also encouraging a socio-economic environment devoid of gender bias and discrimination.
