WiiN hosts workshop, empowers women for career success

The concept of ‘women supporting women’ is founded on the belief that when women support each other, impact is made, and the power embedded in the collectiveness of women is revealed for a greater purpose.

In a bid to further that course, Women Inspiring Impact Network (WiiN) hosted its second career workshop themed: Unscripted and Unstoppable, in Lagos—enabling women with tips to start the year on a high note.

“The intention of the network is to inspire beyond the workshop,” said Folashade Ambrose-Medebem, founder, WIIN. She urged participants to “courageously create their career paths by being fluid, fearless and remaining authentic to their true selves.”

Aimed at empowering participants to get clarity and achieve fulfilment in the New Year, participants learnt to develop personal toolkits for career success, understand themselves better in order to enhance performance and exceed expectations consistently.

“They also gained knowledge on the importance of learning to build strong personal brands, and network with like-minded executives,” she said.

One major takeaway from the workshop was the importance of resilience on the journey to lasting career success, as participants also learned how to break mental boundaries and the importance of delivering value consistently, Ambrose-Medebem said.

Women Inspiring Impact Network is a Non-Governmental Organization established by Mrs Folashade Ambrose-Medebem to enable women to win in their career and in business, discover their best self, focus on opportunities, and drive for indelible impact and success.

Backed by Unilever, the workshop brought high profile and seasoned career executives to share with the workshop participants how they navigated the curveballs life threw at them to achieve lasting success in their careers.

Speakers at the workshop were Adesola Sotande Peters – CFO and vice president finance, Unilever Ghana and Nigeria, Abimbola Okoya, area head of corporate affairs British American Tobacco, West and Central Africa, and Founder Basic Education Africa, as well as Hafsat Abiola, President Women In Africa.
