The moderator, Cyril Okoroigwe, said the panel discussion is aimed at re-awakening the consciousness of industry thought leaders, fintech ecosystem, and regulators to the realities of our time, and how stakeholders can leverage digital to bridge the diversity and gender inclusive gaps.
He affirmed that the importance of this conference is to bring industry leaders, thought-leaders, key influencers, and major stakeholders together to discuss the economic imperatives of diversity and gender inclusion as key to unlocking huge opportunities on a transformational scale.
“Achieving the SDG goal of gender equality is of high economic priority and not just a question of gender equality. There is a need for a coordinated strategy to enhance sensitization,” Okoroigwe stated.
