Leading financial institution, Ecobank Nigeria is teaming up with Africa’s foremost media entrepreneur and blogger, Linda Ikeji to host the latest edition of her popular empowerment programme, ‘Self-made Woman Conference’.

Linda Ikeji started Self-made Woman Conference in 2013 as an advocacy project with the sole aim to mentor and provide financial empowerment to young female entrepreneurs or aspiring ones.

“Self-made Woman Conference” which is in the second edition will hold on June 19th, in Lagos, Nigeria.

Linda Ikeji has over the years used her voice and platform to encourage young Nigerian women to be financially independent and resourceful while providing funding and support for them to kick start their businesses.

Since 2015, Linda Ikeji has given millions of her money to empower female entrepreneurs, with quite a few of them going on to have successful small scale businesses

Speaking about the 2021 edition, Linda said she took time off the conference so as to plan better. ‘I am very passionate about women and very inspired by successful women. I want more women to believe in themselves, fight for their dreams, be financially independent, believe that there’s nothing they can’t accomplish. The conference is to mentor and inspire women with dreams and aspirations.”

Speaking further, Linda said, “It seems the world is more skewed towards making a man more successful than women, or at least that’s the narrative most of our generation were given. 

So, those of us who have broken through the myth have the duty to take as many other women as possible with us. We need more women to succeed. We need more women to head conglomerates. We need more women making impact.”

Linda appreciates Ecobank for coming on board the project. ‘Having Ecobank on board the project is so heartwarming. It is like coming together of liked minds.” She said
