Women in Successful Careers in Nigeria (WISCAR), is set to hold its 2019 Annual leadership and mentorship conference. The Conference themed “I DO NOT WALK ALONE” is scheduled to hold on Saturday, November 24, 2019, at the Muson Center, Onikan, Lagos and will have as its keynote speaker, the Deputy Secretary-General of the UN, Ms Amina Mohammed (OFR). 

The theme of this year’s conference is based on WISCAR’s mission of developing women to build a better nation. To date through its various structured and open series programs, WISCAR has impacted over 8,000women and men.

Commenting on the theme of the conference, Founder of WISCAR, Mrs Amina Oyagbola, an experienced corporate executive and mentor said, “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”.

On her part, the Executive Secretary of WISCAR, Mrs Fabia Ogunmekan enthused that the theme of the event is in consonance with what WISCAR promotes. “Our 2019 Annual Conference, our final master class in the WISCAR calendar will continue to build on this message of community and impact, by celebrating these networks and at the same time critically examining the role of community and networks in our journeys to ‘Becoming more’ and ‘Pressing for progress’ and ‘Better balance’.
