Sterling Bank promotes One Woman initiative

Sterling Bank Plc says it has taught a number of Nigerian women to take action, make positive choices about their own lives and do positive things for others in Lagos.

This, it said, was in support of the Sterling Bank’s One Woman value proposition.

Tagged, ‘Sexually confident woman’, the theme of the one-day programme organised by Tope Mark-Odigie was ‘Self-Love’

According to a statement by the bank, the list of panelists at the programme include the Chief Executive Officer, Design Options, Mrs. Ifeyinwa Ighodalo;  the General Manager, Corporate Banking, Sterling Bank, Mrs. Mojisola Bakare; Nollywood actor, Ms. Kate Henshaw; and a prominent life coach, Izefua Ehi-Williams.

Ighodalo was quoted as commending the bank for living up to its promise of supporting and empowering women.

She said, “Sterling Bank is a very strong supporter of women and when the bank launched the ‘One Woman’ product recently, the goal was to empower women and support them. By putting the word out there about self-love, Sterling Bank is hoping to encourage women and hopefully help them to love themselves.”

Bakare, in her remarks, said, “We have always been talking about breaking the glass ceiling. This unacknowledged barrier to a woman’s career advancement cannot be cleared except women are aware and self-conscious of themselves and know how to position themselves. It is only when a confident woman brings herself out that is when she can be identified for positions and for greatness.”

The Sterling Bank general manager further said, “One Woman by Sterling Bank is about making women realise their potential to make positive changes and be successful in life. Changing how women see themselves is a process and some need professional help. This explains our support for the self-love programme which brings professionals and women together to kick-start this process.

Mark Odigie, who is the convener of the Sexually Confident Woman programme, was quoted as saying, “The objective of self-love is to motivate and encourage women to love and accept themselves. It is about changing the thinking that they must fit a stereotype to be beautiful and also to help them understand that self-confidence will improve their lives and businesses.

“So, it is very important for women to find themselves, find their voices and be comfortable with themselves to achieve all round success.”
