Dare to Inspire (DTI), an initiative set up to empower, enlighten and elevate young (Muslim) women presents her 5th Annual Mentoring Session scheduled to take place via online Webinar on April 24th, 2021.

This year’s session like the previous editions will provide a platform to discuss contemporary topics affecting today’s women and youths, whilst participants will have the opportunity to learn from outstanding women leaders and role models.

The theme for this 5th edition is “A leap of Faith During Unprecedented Changes”. This year’s event will feature leading women leaders and speakers such as Maryam Lemu International Motivational Speaker, Aisha Augie, the Special Adviser to the Federal Minister of Finance on Digital Communications Strategy, Lola Yunus, Founder of Lola Yunus Coaching, LYC, (UK), and Bisma Anwar, Licensed Mental Health Counsellor and Therapist (USA).

The convener of the event Bunmi Ghiazat Adebimpe, a professional therapeutic coach and visual creative, while speaking at the announcement on Tuesday, said the programme has successfully moved to the virtual space as most other gatherings due to the effect of COVID.

Thus, this year’s event will be held online via ZOOM similar to last year. She also promised that the event will be as engaging and thought-provoking as other previous editions due to the calibre of experienced women leaders that will be speaking.

Remarking further on the 5th Edition, she said: “We will explore holding on to the hope of faith as an anchor to survive while recalibrating to new expectations, finding successful ways through unusual life changes and moving through disruptions of the current state to advance smoothly. This would ultimately mean having a sense of control to walk through transitions and uncover the core of possible resistance that comes with change.
