In her remarks at the press briefing, the Chair of the Conference Planning Committee, Molade Adeniyi hinted: ‘We have consistently done this for the past 21 years and it is a testament to what WIMBIZ stands for. What we are particular about is to inspire, empower, advocate, and connect. The 22nd conference is coming up on 2nd – 3rd November at Eko Hotel. It is hybrid, we are open to physical and virtual attendees as we are a global organization.’

‘The theme is Mission I’m possible: Thrive!. We want to challenge our women that you are possible. If we look at what has happened this year, many just feel like let me just close this year but we are saying that all of those challenges you are going through, many people are seeing it as opportunities’, Trek Africa Newspaper can report.

On her part, the Chair of the Communications and Publicity Committee, Tolulope Olorundero said: ‘We want to say thank you to our media partners. Thank you for coming. Without you, we will be speaking in a vacuum.’

‘We believe that media is critical to the success of the program. You are helping us to reach the older generation. For Gen Z’s, most of them are online so we pay attention to the communication we push out. There is always something to look out for on our social media pages about the conference. WIMBIZ associates also share their stories on their social media platforms and it is not sponsored by WIMBIZ. With that campaign alone, we have been able to reach a lot of young people.’

Recalling her first encounter with WIMBIZ, Olorundero shared: ‘My first time of attending WIMBIZ conference, I didn’t have money to pay. I got 10 women who attended and we paid a discount. There are a lot of women out there who want to be part of WIMBIZ so I want to encourage young women that you need to get out there. Opportunities won’t come and meet you in your house’

Lending her voice, the Chair of the Advocacy Committee, Chukwunonso Onny-Ezeh indicated: ‘I also like to add that we carefully curated all sessions. They are not just for the younger generation, they are also for the older. So start thinking about attending.:

‘I remember the first time I attended WIMBIZ conference, we were so excited, we made jackets, connected with every single one after that. So it is amazing and I really encourage you to attend’, Trek Africa Newspaper gathered from Mrs. Onny-Ozeh
