To commemorate this year’s International Women’s Day, the iSpace Foundation, an organization that exists to nourish and flourish the startup businesses, organized a lecture on Wednesday, 8th March, 2017 at their Labone office under the theme “Life as a Female Entrepreneur.”
As the guest speaker for the event, Dr. Mrs. Ellen Hagan, Chief Executive of L’AINE Services Limited in her address to the audience, mostly young women entrepreneurs, encouraged them to dream big. Women, she said, need to be aware of their self-worth and have the innate desire to succeed at what they do irrespective of the additional albatross that they carry with the effort of living.
She urged all women to see leadership as a choice, shake off societal stereotypes, lean in, be bold and sit at the table, be honest and know that success is possible. She advised that by taking bold pragmatic action through purposeful collaboration, women could help each other advance and unleash their limitless potential.
