REQUEST FOR NOMINATION / INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE AT A 2-DAY TRAINING WORKSHOP FOR WOMEN TITLED: WOMEN IN ADMINISTRATION – AUGUST 22 – 23, 2019
In the world over, women are increasingly becoming highly influential; with many rising to top administrative or management and leadership positions in both Public and Private Sectors. Similarly, in some parts of the western world and developing countries, women are being elected or appointed to occupy highly respectable positions such as President, Prime minister, Head of State, CEO’s/MD’s of blue-chip companies etc.
In a developing country like ours, Women in Administration, Management and Leadership as a topical issue is receiving increasing attention today because women are still under-represented in Administration, particularly at the highest level of responsibility. They are now resolved to breaking the traditional glass ceiling that barred them from entering leadership positions even if they possessed the requisite skills and talent to occupy them.
Though few women occupy key Administration, Management and Leadership positions in both Private and Public Sectors of the Nigerian economy, concerted efforts should be made to empower them for the attainment of gender balances by equipping them with appropriate skills to perform their jobs, facilitate their upward mobility and enable them cope with the challenges of their job positions.
This workshop is therefore designed to equip participants with relevant administration and Leadership Skills for Peak Performance.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
• analyse key administration, management and leadership concepts;
• identify leadership responsibilities of women;
• highlight the necessary skills required for women administrators to improve productivity and performance in the workplace;
• identify and effectively utilize contemporary leadership and administration tools for organizational peak performance;
• develop problem-solving and decision-making skills; and
• examine gender imbalance, implications and strategies to address it.
