The Professional/Entrepreneurial Women Workshop (P.E.W) which is a woman empowerment initiative ofthe Virtue Blazers Club (carried out under its outreach arm known as the SCHOOL OF VIRTUE – SOV), geared at empowering the young African woman with the necessary information and entrepreneurial skills needed to primarily create and sustain a good enough financial capacity to survive, support her family, and create positive impact in the society.
This workshop has been organized in different forms since 2005 as an embedded part of the SOV NATIONA LADIES CAMP which is an annual in-gathering of ladies, mostly singles towards entrenching godly morals, values and excellence. Last year in Three States (Lagos, Osun & Plateau), this program had over 5000 ladies registered from all over the country with close to 2000 in actual attendance in Lagos and 500 in otherStates.
This year the camp & workshop would be holding in Four major states (Lagos, Osun, Jos & Port-Harcourt). Organizations like the Lakeshore Cancer Centre, Cadbury Nig. Plc., Nestle, Promasidor, etc have played major roles in adding value to this workshop and we consider this a good opportunity for any organization to showcase their products and give back to the society as a corporate social responsibility.
The Workshop is majorly made up of four sessions:
- PLENARY SESSIONS: Presentations and Challenge sessions by Successful women Entrepreneurs & Professionals
- INTERACTIVE SESSION: An Interactive Question & Answer session based on the plenary sessions.
- PRACTICAL SKILL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS: Practical skill development trainings by masters of the art in several entrepreneurial skills based on the preference of each participant. (List of Practical Workshops & Key Facilitators is hereby attached)
