As part of activities to commemorate this year’s International Women’s Day, Alpha Morgan Capital, held an all-women session for their female employees to unwind and share their experiences on how they are breaking the existing gender bias as bosses, mothers, and wives.

The 2022 IWD themed, “Breaking the Bias”, was aimed at promoting gender equity by recognizing women who have achieved success in their respective fields.

In line with the theme, Alpha Morgan said it has been breaking through the glass ceiling of gender bias in the workplace.

This, it noted, could be seen in the number of female employees who occupy leadership and management positions in the company including a female executive director heading its Abuja office.

Sharing her experience at the event, Mrs Adebanke Adetifa, Head, Global Wealth, Lagos, said the best way she juggled motherhood and work was by consciously creating a balance and ensuring that one area of her life does not suffer because of the other.

Also speaking, the Executive Director, Global Wealth, Adedoyin Anyaehie, revealed that her secret to career growth was the desire to always create value.

“Women constitute over 60% of our workforce at Alpha Morgan Capital, with about 50% of them in our top and first-tier management positions”, Anyaehie stated.

The Group Managing Director, GMD, Alpha Morgan Capital, Ade Buriamo, stated that the organisation was built around women because “when you take care of a woman, you are taking care of an organization, a family, and a nation.”

Buriamo assured that the company would continue to train, empower, position, and appoint women to occupy key leadership positions.

The programme created an avenue for the company’s female staff to unwind, share ideas and connect with one another.
