They will advocate for gender equity and balance, mitigate barriers to women’s leadership, commit to women’s greater C-suite representation, and fuel funding for female founders.

Inya Lawal, the recently appointed chair, expressed commitment to continuously strive for women’s empowerment and opportunity building through providing the capacity and resources.

She holds a Master’s degree in Artistic Performance from Stockholm University in Sweden. Dr Inya is a recipient of an honorary doctorate award from the ESCAE Benin University, the Benin Republic, for her outstanding contribution to Women’s Leadership and Global Trade Development.

She is the Lead Program Partner to the U.S. Consulate General in Nigeria, and the Program Partner for the Academy for Women Entrepreneurs, a White House/Department of State initiative.
