…As Optiva Capital named as lead sponsor of event

The Chief Executive Officer of Optiva Capital Partners, Jane Kimemia, Fela and Tara Durotoye, Shaffy Bello, Audrey Joe-Ezigbo, Grace Ofure Ibhakhomu, Ololade Ogungbenro, and the Convener of SheCan Conference, Ezinne Ezeani, have been announced as the speakers at this year’s SheCan Conference, with the theme, ‘SheCan Do More 5.0.’

Speaking at a press conference to unveil Optiva Capital as lead sponsor, Kimemia said that the theme for this year’s conference being hosted by SheCan Nigeria aligned with the philosophy and the character of her organisation.

SheCan Nigeria is a movement dedicated to empowering women in Nigeria.

“We are very proud to be the headline sponsor of such an important agenda of empowering women to be more. The female gender has always been important to us as over 70 of our workforce is women. When you empower a woman, you empower a generation. The theme of this year’s conference aligns with who we are at Optiva Capital Partners and we are happy to partner with SheCan as we tell our stories,” Kimemia said, expressing her excitement that Optiva Capital Partners came on board as a lead sponsor.

The press conference organised by SheCan Nigeria was hosted at Optiva Capital’s headquarters at Churchgate Towers Victoria Island Lagos to also announce the conference scheduled for May 24 at Harbor Point, Victoria Island.

Kimemia will be advocating for the aspirations of women determined to achieve greater heights.

Briefing the press earlier, the Founder of the SheCan Nigeria initiative, Ezinne Ezeani said that the organisation believes women and young girls should be able to ‘Be More’ in every facet of life irrespective of their background, gender, religion or their limitations, to be able to give their best to the society.

“SheCan is a movement to empower women. Every woman can do more irrespective of who you are. Empowered women will come together to empower others in this year’s conference. We had over 3000 participants last year and expect about 4000 this year. Beyond the conference, we are a social-impact organisation. This year’s conference theme is ‘Positioning for More’ in your career, business, and anything you aspire to become. We are not a gender-based organisation, we partner with those who want to empower the next generation. We are grateful to our sponsors, especially our lead sponsor, Optiva Capital Partners who enabled us to do more in this year’s conference,” Ezeani said.

Recognising the partners who have remained loyal throughout the years such as Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company Limited (SNEPCo), and Wema Bank, and have contributed significantly to the organisation’s growth, she disclosed that attendees would have access to a wide range of enriching opportunities, including career development, networking, mentorship, empowerment, and much more.
