Glo and eBusiness Life Celebrate The International Day of the Girl Child with Empowerment Programme for Pupils
Digital Transformation Leader, Globacom has collaborated with foremost specialized ICT magazine, eBusiness Life, to commemorate this year’s edition of the International Day of the Girl Child.
Globacom threw its weight behind the magazine to hold an interactive capacity-building session for pupils of select secondary schools in Lagos.
This, according to a statement from Globacom, is consistent with the company’s commitment to promoting women empowerment and capacity building, especially in the area of ICT. Globacom said this is aimed at equipping the womenfolk with the awareness, skills, and knowledge required for them to be active players in the fast-evolving digital economy.
Speaking at the occasion, an accomplished educationist and former Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Princess Adebisi Sosan, commended Globacom for supporting the initiative, which was held at the Landmark Event Centre in Lagos on Thursday. Princess Sosan described Globacom as a corporate citizen worthy of emulation for choosing to contribute to global effort to promote the welfare of the girl child.
Also speaking at the ceremony, Globacom’s representative and Manager, Public Sector, Lagos, Justina Abdulateef, encouraged participants to rise above stereotypes and discriminations that had deterred many girls from pursuing their dreams.
