Wema Bank partners with SheCan Nigeria to support women

In furtherance of its commitment to women’s empowerment and the transformative impact of empowered women in society, Wema Bank Plc is partnering with SheCan Nigeria to organize a workshop with a goal to help women realize their potentials and develop capabilities to achieve success in society.

SheCan Nigeria is a movement for today’s woman to realize her potential and develop her capabilities to achieve success through collaboration and empowerment and to become active players and contributors in our world today.

The partnership between the bank and the movement in previous times has produced pieces of training and workshops where women have gotten support and mentorship in various areas from tech, crafts, education, etc.

This year’s edition of the SheCan conference, which would be both virtual and on-site, will drive a change in the culture and perception of women in today’s world.

In a statement issued by the bank, one goal of the conference is to reinforce the fundamental change that women can do more even in the face of the global economic meltdown, and as the world recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic.
