The gender glass ceiling in Nigeria’s financial services might not yet be shattered, however, a significant paradigm shift has continued to be ongoing, challenging the conventional male-dominated landscape.
Notably, women are ascending to prominent leadership positions, defying stereotypes, and leaving their indelible mark.
These influential women are not only redefining industry standards but occupy pivotal roles in the C-suite, at regulatory bodies, and as mentors to emerging female professionals.
Their accomplishments hold even greater significance in an industry increasingly emphasizing increased gender diversity. In 2021, ThePressNG shared the spotlight of seven MDs and/or CEOs of banks.
Today, ThePressNG spotlights accomplished female leaders, in the banking and insurance industries of the financial services sector, managing substantial assets at a critical juncture of the nation’s economic reforms, with a stock market All Share Index (ASI) at 66,382.14 points and market capitalization worth N36.3 trillion in Q3, 2023.
It is worth noting that these women are also actively engaged in other initiatives promoting financial literacy, diversity, and economic empowerment.
Allow us to introduce you to these formidable women shaping the landscape of Nigeria’s banking and insurance industries in 2023.
These are individuals whose influence transcends the confines of boardrooms and financial statements.
