First Bank sponsors Inspire for Women Conference


First Bank of Nigeria Limited has again raised the bar in women empowerment with its sponsorship of the Inspire for Women Conference scheduled for May 1, 2015.

The conference is a social entrepreneurship initiative focused on raising women for leadership in various spheres of life and has been designed to provide participants with mentorship opportunities and business development training.

First Bank has, over several years, supported women empowerment and women inclusion initiatives to encourage their participation and contribution to the growth and development of the economy. The bank had supported the Women of West Africa Excellence in Entrepreneurship (WOWe) Conference, Women in Management, Business and Public Service (WimBiz) Conference and recently sponsored SME Workshops for Women-led SMEs in addition to several other women empowerment programmes.

According to the Group Head, Marketing & Corporate Communications, at First Bank, Mrs. Folake Ani-Mumuney, the bank is committed to initiatives that would raise women leaders and increase their participation in the polity. “We would continuously engage with initiatives that will inspire, mentor and raise a new generation of women,” she stated.

The Inspire for Women Conference series debuted in 2013 with a vision to raise, inspire and mentor women to take their place in the growth and development of the society as well as achieve their God-given potentials.
