WIMBIZ WOMEN IN POLITICS DIALOGUE
The clamour for increased representation of women in elective and appointive positions of power is at an all time high and the reasons are the same – Inclusion & Representation MATTERS!   Do you know in 2 decades of continuous democratic governance in Nigeria, only 6 women have emerged as Deputy Governors?  Do you also know that in 2020, Nigeria is still yet to produce a Female Governor?  It is saddening but this is our reality.  The good thing is, we do not have to sit still and bemoan our fate, we can change this reality by getting off the sidelines and taking informed actions to ensure positive outcomes in 2023 and beyond.   Let us do it together!

WIMBIZ Special Program - Take a Stand: Say NO to sexual and gender based violence
The theme of the event “Take a Stand: It is TIME” stems from the rise in cases of Sexual and Gender Based Domestic Violence which has increased due to the COVID-19 global pandemic and ensuing lockdown across the world and specifically in Nigeria. We believe our event is taking place at a time when there is an unprecedented increase in reported cases of rape, sexual assault and domestic violence in Nigeria in recent months, some of which have unfortunately resulted in brutal and unsolved murders which lends to the notion that these conversations need to be brought to the fore.   Our Speakers  Josephine Effah Chukwuma, Founder & Executive Director Project Alert on Violence Against Women   Professor Ayodele Olurotimi Coker MD (Rom), Msc. (Psychology), FWACP (Psychiatry); Professor, Lagos State University College of Medicine   Titilola Vivour Adeniyi, Public Administrator Coordinator, Lagos State Domestic & Sexual Violence Response Team   Dr. Kemi Dasilva Ibru, MD, MPH Consultant Specialist Obstetrics & Gynecology; Founder, Women at Risk International Foundation (WARIF)   Ifeoma I.
