Women in Successful Careers in Nigeria (WISCAR) on Sunday, November 24, held its 2019 annual leadership and mentorship conference in Lagos with the theme ‘ I Do Not Walk Alone.’
Emphasising on the theme of the conference, Founder of WISCAR, Mrs Amina Oyagbola said it is based on its mission to develop women and build a better nation.
According to her, “to date, through our various structured and open series programs, WISCAR has impacted over 8,000 women and men. Our conference theme ‘I do not walk alone’, is a perfect summation of the essence of WISCAR.
“In our various mentorship programs and advocacy for equity and parity, we harness the power of togetherness, community and networks to achieve critical impact.
“We believe firmly in the timeless African proverb that says if you want to go fast, go alone if you want to go far, go together. Now more than ever, it is pertinent to pay attention to the issue of solidarity, partnership and collaboration and this is what we are actively doing at WISCAR,” she noted.
The event which held at the Muson Centre pulled together women of high net worth value.
