Arise Monalisa Foundation (AMF) an NGO, says all is set to celebrate female entrepreneurs, who are breaking forth in a male dominated industry from diverse fields, to mark the 2023 International Women’s Day.
Founder of AMF, Monalisa Chinda, who said this in a statement on Monday in Abuja, added that the foundation would be celebrating achievements and contributions of women to the country development.
Chinda said that other activities planned for the celebration of the IWD included reaching out to the less privileged ones and equally celebrating men folks who supported women agenda.
She said that the foundation had rolled out an event Tagged “Equity versus Equality, Redefining Gender Roles,” to celebrate the history of women in the society.
According to her, the event which will take place on Sunday, March 26, is billed to celebrate 2023 IWD, and also Women’s History Month.
She said with the sub theme “Embracing Equity (Empower One Woman Empower Generations)”, preceding the event was a Green Carpet session, followed by the main event at the Envoy Hotel Abuja.
“Highlights of the event will include Networking Session, Charity Event, and Product Showcase and services.
“This significant occasion will be celebrating female entrepreneurs from diverse fields who are breaking forth in a male dominated industry.
“However, there’s a twist to this remarkable event as it will also celebrate male folks,” she said.
According to her, the foundation will also be celebrating men who have embraced their feminism sides and are proudly strutting their stuff in otherwise female dominated industries.
“And, at the end of this event, we will be reaching out to the less privileged ones.
“We are banking on the support of the friends and stakeholders of the foundation to donate food items, money, clothing, books and anything that you have that you are no longer using,” she said.
Chinda said that IWD had occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people.
acco4ding to her, today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organisation specific.
