The Centre for Gender Studies (CGS), University of Uyo, in collaboration with the Conference of University of Uyo Organisations will be celebrating the International Women’s Day 2015 from 6th to 8th March, 2015 beginning at 10 a.m. everyday.
The theme of the celebration is “Make it Happen!” A keynote will be given on this theme by Mrs. Folorunso Alakija, the Group Managing Director of the Rose of Sharon Group/Executive Vice Chairman of Famfa Oil Ltd; in addition to a symposium on the thematic areas related to this topic.
The meeting will provide a forum for celebrating womanhood. It shall also provide a platform for sharing problems and solutions on gender and developmental issues. Beyond that, there will be an opportunity to take concrete action points and follow-up on the symposium.
We invite you to spend the weekend with the UNIUYO community as we explore various ways to make things happen for the woman in different areas, through lectures, symposium, rally, exhibition and awards.
