“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.”

“Yet I am, also aware of how much there still is to do to increase the representation of women in business at all levels.”

“Let me be frank;  ‘Africa PLC’ cannot and will not advance at the pace it should, without the amplification of female roles in senior positions.”

“Until we see parity in leadership teams and in the boardrooms, I will be resolute, and vocal, in my mission to bring women to the forefront of corporate Africa”.
