On May 26, 2023, South Africa-based multinational mobile telecommunications company, Mobile Telephone Network (MTN), joined other multinationals and corporates to sign United Nations (UN) Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEP), which is part of MTN’s fulfilment of the Nigeria2equal commitment, which is a clarion call made by the UN through its SDG 5.
Confiance News captured the photo of the event through a release by the Nigerian Exchange Limited (NGX) on Friday.
Nigeria2Equal is an IFC-led, multi-stakeholder program in partnership with the Nigerian Exchange (NGX) (formerly The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE)). The program aims to reduce gender gaps across employment and entrepreneurship in Nigeria’s private sector.
“Nigeria2Equal brings leading companies together to make specific, measurable, and time-bound commitments to increase women’s participation in Nigeria’s private sector as leaders, employees, and as entrepreneurs in the corporate value chain,” IFC explained on its website.
