AXA Mansard, a member of AXA, the global leader in insurance and asset management, will join women all over the world, today, to celebrate the International Women’s Day.
March is set aside globally and observed as the Women’s Month. The observance peaks on March 8, the day that is celebrated worldwide as International Women’s Day. The date is significant in many ways as a time to reflect on progress made on women’s rights as well as celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women around the world.
The theme for the 2019 International Women’s Day is ‘Think equal, build smart, innovate for change’ and is focused on empowering women for gender parity, through innovation, particularly in social protection systems, public service access and sustainable infrastructure.
Speaking on the celebration, the Chief Executive Officer at AXA Mansard Insurance Plc, Mr. Kunle Ahmed, said: “Women have become very important in the decision-making process, for the purchase of insurance and other financial services. This is why AXA in Nigeria has developed the SHE (Super Heroes Everyday) initiative.
He said: “Through this initiative, AXA is committed to partnering women across all groups, sectors and life stages, to build a network that can support the growth of their businesses and generally create better lives for themselves and their families.”
