Chief Executive Officer, Ajay Awasthi in his address at the event said: “Spectranet recognises the role played by the women in bringing about deep societal changes and the sacrifices they make to ensure the quality of life for each one of us. It is with this acute sense of reverence that we are commemorating the International Women’s Day. Being a technology company, it is an honour and privilege to help create more opportunities for the enterprising women of Nigeria by ensuring faster, affordable and reliable access to internet”.

Speaking on the previous edition of the commemoration, Awasthi noted, “Last year, we had the privilege to honour two outstanding women at the Ikeja Golf Club. The move was well received and it encouraged us to do more for the causes related to women. Every woman should be supported and given the opportunity to do even more in the Nigerian society. We can make this happen by making sure women get access to worldwide opportunities through seamless internet connectivity.

Commenting, celebrity guest and thespian, Tina Mba lauded Spectranet for appreciating the resilience of Nigerian women and encouraging them to activate their potentials.

“I am excited by the rare privilege to join Spectranet in commemorating a very important day, the International Women’s Day. Nigerian women are resilient. They defy odds and go all the way to make an impact.

“Spectranet has extended a hand of friendship to women. They want their products and services to be women-friendly. I’m happy to be the point of contact between the brand and women in leveraging the aspirations of women, regardless of occupation or specialization. When you empower a woman, you empower a child and by extension the world.”

Mba urged the Spectranet brand to sustain the enthusiasm and momentum in empowering women to further boost the fortunes of the Nigerian society.

She said: “From what I have noticed, Spectranet is committed to motivating women to think, create and innovate for the good of our society.  I would like to use this opportunity to urge the brand to keep this drive alive.”

The business of tech continues to be redefined by innovators in a wide array of professional fields. These women, though not ‘techies’, have discovered a way to use their unique expertise to create value for customers through technology.

Why we need more women in technology isn’t far-fetched. But, how to encourage and keep more women in technology, especially in Africa, remains a mixture of targeted changes in things like policy as well as in nuanced cultural perceptions that inhibit entry and growth for women in the sector.
