Too much fun is good! Fantastic Moroccan-themed dinner (menu below) alongside dinner guests: Dr. Toke Oke - co-Founder of Brookside Medical Olamide Abudu - Former West Africa Head of Legal & Company Secretary of Cadbury Nigeria Plc and Executive Director & Head of Business Development of Transocean Busola Odusanya - Senior Attorney at an IOC Stella Duru - Partner, Banwo & Ighodalo Abiola Adekoya (Chef of the day) - CEO of a stockbroking firm Aishetu Fatima Dozie - Founder, African HERstory Inc.
We talked about life in Nigeria and the complexities that we experience as women! It was a ton of fun with lots of similar and opposing views. We are grateful to our male counterparts - husbands, partners, bosses, colleagues, etc. - who encourage us to be well rounded and to shoot for the stars.
While we discussed some of the limitations that we experience as professional women, we understand that we are operating from a position of privilege in an environment where millions of women are truly disenfranchised. We are grateful for the platforms that we are afforded to share our stories.
Thank you for watching African HERstory!
