Paul Usoro & Co (“PUC”) was well represented at the 2022 edition of the Annual Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association Women Forum (NBAWF) held in commemoration of the International Women’s Day 2022.
PUC played a frontline role in the actualisation of the success of this year’s conference which was themed “The Invisible Hand of Gender Bias: Championing Collective Change” as we were privileged to have our partner, Mrs. Adetola Bucknor-Taiwo serve as the Chairperson of the Conference Planning Committee, assisted by our Associate Trainee, Unwanaobong Ekanem who also served as a member of the Logistics and Technical Sub-Committee. The Conference featured a total of six plenary sessions on topics ranging from the “Hidden Biases in Courtroom Dynamics: Gender and the Judiciary” to “Shattering Stereotypes: Heels in the Boardroom – A Case for Navigating or Negotiating the Corporate Ladder”.
It is worthy to note that the NBAWF was inaugurated in September 2019 by our Principal Partner, Paul Usoro, SAN during his tenure as the President of the Nigerian Bar Association.
PUC is dedicated to creating a culture where everyone regardless of gender, is given equal opportunity to thrive and we will do our part in support of the fight against stereotypes and biases especially in the workplace.
