The Foundation has now grown and extended her focus and activities to building and honing the skills of female professionals. Mrs Ashaye recognizes the role of women in any society and the need for more participation of women in corporate leadership role. The Foundation provides learning opportunities for members, career opportunities and business insight, a networking platform, one-on-one mentoring program, personal and professional development forum/retreat as well as continuous discussions on maintaining work-life balance.
Female participation/gender inclusion in the c suite and in corporate roles is a continuous discuss but taking practical steps in achieving this is what Mrs Ashaye desires to achieve through her network of upwardly mobile ladies.
If you are successful, it is because, somewhere, sometime, someone gave you life or idea, that started you in the right direction. Remember also, you are indebted to life, until you help some less fortunate people just as you were helped.
