Women across the country have been urged to play their roles responsibly and objectively to ensure that the struggle to chart a cause for equality among gender in homes and workplace is attained.

The Chief Human Resource Officer, MTN Nigeria, Esther Akinnukawe, gave the charge in Lagos while welcoming participants to an event organised by the telecom firm to commemorate the 2020 International Women’s Day.

She described the journey to achieving gender equality as “a long, slow yet totally worthy cause.”

Speaking on this year’s theme: ‘Each for Equal’, at the Penthouse, MTN Head office in Ikoyi, Lagos, she said: “The responsibility is on us to ensure that we continue to give a hundred and one percent by playing our roles to promote the objectives before us.”

She also spoke on the efforts of Women at Y’ello (W.A.Y) to address the peculiarities of a professional woman in the workplace and the struggle to chart the cause for equality.

Also speaking, an investment expert and Chief Executive Officer of Chapel Hill Denham, Mobolaji Balogun, shared his thoughts on the intricacies of gender equality and the prospects of inclusion in contributing to the development of sustainable economies.

The event, held to discuss and tackle some of the unconscious biases shared against women, had the participants discussed gender-based violence and unfair policies against women in workplace, among others.

The event reached its climax when the ‘Strike-A-Pose’ competition commenced, as Y’ello women proudly took the #EachforEqual pose, adorning it with different angles and beautiful smiles amidst positive vibes.
