Gender Equality

The current pandemic has worsened work conditions for everyone, especially women. Being required to work from home means increased household responsibilities which are not commensurate with working hours. Work conditions need to consider this, including other areas that affect women in the workplace. We believe that having more women in senior leadership positions within organizations would mean that these issues will be addressed effectively.

According to reports on world demographics, Nigeria is expected to be the country with the second largest population in the world by 2100, and will lead the world in the next generation. On the other hand, according to the World Economic Forum's Gender Gap Report 2020, quantifying the gender gap in the four areas of economy, education, health, and politics, Nigeria is ranked 128th on the global rankings (out of 153). In addition, the pandemic has negatively affected Nigerian women and girls because they are required to stay home and have more care responsibilities.
Across developed and developing countries there is a negative relationship between the amount of time women spend on unpaid domestic work and economic participation.

We believe that increased representation of women in senior leadership roles, where decisions are made will mean that the issues that affect women will be easily fed into policy to aid gender equality across all industries.
In order to achieve our goal, we would like to implement the following three initiatives;
(1) Conducting gender equality training (Gender equality training will include creating awareness of current statistics and poor representation in leadership positions and the greater impact this may have on women groups as a whole.
It will also include policies and efforts towards achieving gender equality and ways in which employees can contribute to attaining this agenda) for new employees and management
(2) Implementing mentorship for women
(3) Tax benefits for certified companies (companies are required to formulate an action plan that includes numerical targets and initiatives, and analysis of issues related to women's activities)
