We’re delighted to introduce you to the next nominee on the Glazia Women’s History Month Spotlight Series, Abiola Adediran.
The Glazia Women’s History Month Spotlight presents an excellent platform that identifies and celebrates African women living in Africa and the diaspora. These women are innovative in their fields of endeavour, actively making an impact and transforming communities. These women do not need to have fancy titles or be celebrities.
A well-conceived, well-designed, well-run retreat can help change an organization’s strategic direction, help people see things in new ways and envision new possibilities for themselves and the organization, and contribute to creating a new and healthier culture for the organization.Abiola Adediran
