A group has launched the campaign for active participation of women in leadership roles in Nigeria.

The campaign was  flagged off at the maiden edition of Young Women in Leadership programme in Abuja.

The programme was initiated by Stephanie Adams of the Premium Times Centre of Investigative Journalism (PTCIJ).

Adams said the Young Women in Leadership programme was designed as a forum for young women to come together and identify “common values inherent in them in order to uplift each other.”

During her presentation titled “Developing leadership skills/ work-life balance (relevance in the workplace), Adenike Aloba, a broadcast journalist, said as a woman, there is need to have a clear perception of one’s strength, weakness, emotions, value and motivation

She added it is important to understand the tipping point; “a point where everything could crumble if the balance is not found.”

“It is not about looking at yourself in the mirror and reinforcing ‘I can do it’, instead what you should tell and ask yourself is ‘how can I do it?’” she said.

Speaking on “Women in governance”, Mariam Laushi, national publicity secretary of Modern Democratic Party, said a woman requires courage and “a tough skin” to remain in governance.

She said: “In the parliament today, you will find more men than women and their decisions often times do not favour women, because the percentage of women there is very minute.”

Dapo Olorunyomi, publisher of Premium Times, the time when women were alienated from work spaces has gone.

He said young women should be more encouraged in finding their place in the work space, including newsrooms.
