At our festival for hot babes only, HERtitude, we come together to celebrate all things fabulous about being a woman in Nigeria and beyond, from killer performances to fun activities and empowering discussions. 

We’re taking things up a notch with a women’s leadership session in partnership with the Women in Leadership Advancement Network (WILAN) and their MsRepresented campaign. With a panel and dedicated booth, we will address the misrepresentation and underrepresentation of women in leadership positions in Nigeria because, let’s face it, hot babes, it’s time to take our rightful place at the top.

Hot babes in leadership

What can you expect from this partnership? Get ready to be inspired, empowered and educated by three incredible young female leaders who are absolutely slaying the game — with bat-shit-crazy innovative content creator, Hauwa Lawal, as their moderator.

Dive into the world of art and creativity with Morenike Olusanya (@iamrenike) as she shares her journey to success and spills the tea on what it takes to thrive as a female creative artist and entrepreneur in a male-dominated industry.

Lawyer and public servant, Ayisat Agbaje, will drop some serious knowledge bombs on how to navigate leadership as a young person and how to step into your power as a political leader in Nigeria. So come with note-taking supplies, hot babes.”

We also have Jennie Nwokoye, health-tech innovator and CEO of Clafiya, onboard. From disrupting the healthcare industry to breaking barriers as a female entrepreneur, Jennie will show us how to make our mark and change the game in tech.

Leadership dress-up time

WILAN will set up a super fun booth at HERtitude, where you can channel your inner girl boss and dress up as iconic female leaders from across the globe. Whether you want to rock Ngozi Okonjo Iweala’s iconic head tie and glasses or channel your inner Beyoncé, there’s a character for every hot babe out there.

Plus, for those who prefer to keep it real, WILAN will be on hand to chat about what “MsRepresented” means to you and how we can work together to change the game for women everywhere. Get ready to level up your leadership game with Zikoko and WILAN.
