“I have always placed a strong emphasis on doing what I can to support and nurture talented women in business - through mentorship and creating opportunities for others to excel in business and the workplace across Africa,” stated Alabi.

“I am humbled and honoured to be recognised alongside so many outstanding female executives who are championing gender diversity and inclusion.”
