WIMCA is the largest gathering of female brands and marketing communications professionals in Nigeria and Sub-Saharan Africa. The annual event aims to recognize and celebrate leading women who have weathered the storm and have risen through the ranks to attain remarkable heights in the brands, marketing, and communications industry.
According to the organisers of the event, when it comes to gender inclusion, AXA Mansard occupies a unique position in the insurance sector in Nigeria. From the leadership of the organisation to its commitment to women initiatives, AXA Mansard holds the ace when it comes to ensuring access to equal opportunities for the female and male gender.
Speaking on the awards, Kunle Ahmed, CEO AXA Mansard Insurance expressed his delight at the award, noting that it is another recognition of the company’s continued commitment to gender diversity and inclusion.
He said: “This is an award like no other, we are glad to be recognised by a reputable platform like WIMCA. In our quest to deliver value to all stakeholders, we are always focused on engaging the best talents and creating a platform that gives equal opportunities to everyone. We are convinced that everyone no matter their gender or preferences must be given equal opportunity and have designed our management systems and policies in ways that provide women (and men) with opportunities for growth. To be recognised for this is a bonus”.
Commenting on the award, CCMO of AXA Mansard, Jumoke Odunlami said the award once again points to the women-friendly environment that the organisation has created.
We are a customer focused company, so we know that to deliver the best of services and products to our customers, the diversity of the male and female gender is essential. So, we had to give the women as much opportunities as any other gender”. On her award as the Most Outstanding Marketing Professional in the Insurance Category of WIMCA she mentioned that “this recognition from WIMCA is welcome and appreciated. Insurance plays a crucial role in the development of economies and many of Nigeria’s problems will be solved if Insurance is fully embraced. Whilst we will continue to play our part in driving awareness, collaboration amongst operators remains one of the essential tools in ensuring that we gain more traction in transforming Nigeria’s low insurance penetration rate.”
