Access Bank Plc has continued to demonstrate unwavering commitment to women as it is set to mark the International Women’s Day, 2019 with Diamond Bank Plc, as both banks look forward to the completion of the merger process which will make the new entity the largest retail bank in Africa.
The event will be celebrated with the theme ‘Balance for Better’. Starting with a cocktail with top management from both banks and other dignitaries in attendance on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, both banks will host women across various industries to a breakfast conference on the second day of the conference, March 14, 2019.
Ada Udechukwu, Head of Women Banking, Access Bank Plc, said, “At Access Bank, we are passionate about the woman and her overall well-being. We are interested in her growth in family life, career, health and other areas. We will continue to provide platforms and support programmes that will help women and their businesses.
This value-packed conference has been organised to help women learn essential lessons which can be applied to their daily lives and businesses. It will help them become all they want to be and be the best at it.” Herbert Wigwe, Group Managing Director/CEO Access Bank Plc, speaking about the event, said: “At the core of our services is catering to the needs of women and we are constantly gearing efforts towards promoting women-focused initiatives and providing opportunities to help them maximize their potential.
“One of the reasons we are hosting this breakfast conference is to help women overcome limitations as well as reach their best potential. As we expand with the merger, and continue on our journey to building Africa’s biggest retail bank, our women now have more innovative offerings that they can explore to make themselves and their businesses better.”
Corroborating this statement, Head of Affluent Banking at Diamond Bank, Dolapo Orelaja, said “This joint conference between Diamond Bank and Access Bank has been organised to equip our women with the knowledge and skill that they require to grow their businesses, develop themselves and stay relevant in the fast changing business environment of today.
