AXA Mansard has empowered over 100 young female entrepreneurs with digital marketing skills in Lagos.
AXA Mansard is a member of AXA and one of the global leaders in insurance and asset management, during a two-day digital marketing training in Lagos.
It said this was part of the company’s programmes to commemorate the recently held International Women’s Day.
The Chief Customer and Marketing Officer, AXA Mansard, Jumoke Odunlami, stated that this was in line with AXA Mansard’s inclusivity agenda.
She said the company is convinced that support for women, through its inclusive protection programmes, is important to AXA’s purpose of acting for human progress by protecting what matters.
She said: “It’s almost trite to say that SMEs are the engine for economic growth, especially in developing countries like Nigeria. What needs to be continually discussed is how Nigeria is going to unlock that potential for economic development and how much of that potential will be unlocked by women and for women.
