The Embassy of Sweden in Abuja has reiterated its continuous commitment to the promotion of gender equality and women’s economic empowerment in Nigeria.

To celebrate the progress made and highlight what still needs to be done, the Embassy together with Global Wissen Consult, a Swedish/Nigerian social development enterprise, would host an International Women’s Day event coming up next week.

Fredrik Ähsberg, Head of Political and Trade Affairs Section, Embassy of Sweden in Abuja, said the event would be a prestigious gathering of key stakeholders and change-makers committed to advancing gender equality and women’s economic empowerment.

The intimate event promises to embody the theme of this year’s International Women’s Day “Count Her In – Economic Empowerment & Inclusion, Policies & Education”, which resonates with the global call to action for inclusive participation and empowerment of women, across economic and policy spheres.

The event aims to serve as a dynamic platform for robust discussions, networking opportunities, and the exchange of ideas on critical issues surrounding gender equality, economic empowerment, policies, and education.

Through engaging dialogues, participants will gain exclusive insights into innovative approaches to gender equality and learn about actionable strategies for fostering inclusion, economic empowerment, and policy advocacy.

“At the Embassy of Sweden in Nigeria, we are deeply honoured to host this significant gathering of individuals, dedicated to advancing the rights and opportunities of women,” said H.E. Ms Annika Hahn-Englund, Sweden’s Ambassador to Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon and ECOWAS.

“This International Women’s Day event embodies our shared commitment to fostering a more inclusive and equitable society, where women and men have equal opportunities to thrive across all sectors.”
