The Fund participated in the UNDP Side Event which focused on ‘Women Mainstreaming and Political Inclusiveness’ as part of activities held to mark the 2017 International Women’s Day on March 7 in Abuja.

The one day session in Abuja provided a platform to share ideas on how women can empower each other to enhance political inclusiveness and relevance in Nigeria.

The event featured a documentary highlighting roles women have played the world over in shaping modern leadership (Nigerian Sheroes were also featured). A panel presentation from a diverse group of influential women leaders in education and faith communities generated further discussions.

The Fund continues to join other organisations to hold conversations around the political, economic and social issues that impact on women’s advancement alongside in democracy, leadership and governance processes.
