Nigeria: Wiscar Founder Tasks Women On Skills Acquisition

Lagos — Women in Successful Careers (WISCAR), a network of career women has graduated its third stream of successful mentees.

The graduands are beneficiaries of the new Habiba Balogun Consulting (HBC Series) as part of the WIN-with-WISCAR and School of Excellence.

Speaking at the ceremony, the founder, Mrs. Amina Oyagbola said WISCAR has grown tremendously in the last few years.

She said: "At our first graduation we had just 10 mentees and today we graduated 25. It shows just how much we have grown and the increasing recognition being shown to WISCAR.

"Our resolve remains to equip women with the requisite skills and abilities to function in the corporate world and society at large.

"Our goal is to initiate and promote the emergence of a highly motivated and talented female work force that will become agents of positive cultural and policy changes within their respective organizations and Nigeria."

Chief Executive Officer of the Main One Cable Company, Ms Funke Opeke, told the mentees to take advantage of the enormous opportunities available to them, saying that "Nigeria presents a lot of opportunities for empowerment and adding value to one's society."
