“The fastest way to change society is to mobilise the women of the world.” – Charles Malik
The International Women’s Day is an annual global celebration held in honor of women all over the world irrespective of their age and class to commemorate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women around the world. It is also a day to remember the struggles women face and honor the accomplishments they have made.
As an equal opportunity employer, who focuses more on individuality, productivity and outputs, we celebrate women all over the world contributing to the growth of businesses, families and the society as a whole. Today we celebrate our very own Nigerian women who despite the cultural and political prejudice keep forging on and building remarkable lives for themselves.
Our team at iCentra consists of women who have carved a niche for themselves and proven over and over in a society that is characterized by so much bias against the female gender that with determination, hardwork, diligence and constant self-development there is no limit to what can be achieved as individuals irrespective of gender.
As we celebrate the International Women’s Day, we are proud to introduce some of the extremely resourceful and extraordinary women on the iCentra Board.
