The intent of this program is to prepare female undergraduates on workplace and business issues by challenging them at an interactive session to unveil and attempt to discuss and resolve their expectations, opportunities and/or fears. The anchor persons, who are drawn from the WIMBIZ pool of Mentors from varying sectors, also attempt to walk the participants through their experiences and hopefully pass onto the young women, the rules of survival in our patriarchal society. This program also serves as a tool for mentoring and identifying passionate female undergraduates interested in working actively in a professional organization or interested in running their businesses.
The 2016 WIWIC Program, themed “Building the Future that you Want”, scheduled to hold on Thursday, February 11 at Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State.
