2 min read

The Lagos State chapter of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) has joined the world in celebrating the International Women’s Day 2023, which has the theme “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality”.

On this year’s theme, which aims to highlight the importance of leveraging innovation and technology to achieve gender equality and empower women in all aspects of life, the chapter Chairman, Mrs Comfort Obot Nwanwkwo noted that the world is moving towards a digital age, and women must not be left behind.

She said: “It is critical to address the gender gap in access to technology and digital literacy to ensure that women can benefit from the opportunities that come with the digital age. As a professional body committed to promoting excellence in the practice of Public Relations, the Lagos Chapter of NIPR recognizes the need for increased awareness and support for women’s access to technology and digital literacy. We also acknowledge the remarkable achievements of women in the field of technology and innovation, and we encourage more women to join the industry.

“We call on government and private sector stakeholders to prioritise initiatives that will promote gender equality and bridge the digital divide for women. This includes policies that support equal access to technology, digital skills training programs, and the promotion of women’s participation in technology and innovation.

“We also urge individuals and organisations to embrace diversity and inclusivity in the workplace and ensure that women have equal opportunities to contribute to the growth and development of their organisations”.
