As part of its Employee Give-Back initiative, employees of The Nigerian Stock Exchange have donated funds to support the initiatives of the Women at Risk International Foundation (WARIF) in Lagos during the Christmas holidays.
The Employee Giveback initiative is one of various employee engagement initiatives instituted to encourage employees to make a positive impact in their communities whilst providing them with hands-on experience and learning opportunities on issues that plague the society.
WARIF is a non-profit organization founded in 2016 in response to the high incidence of sexual assault, rape and human trafficking occurring amongst young girls and women across Nigeria.
While presenting the donation to WARIF, Mr. Olumide Orojimi, Head, Corporate Communications, NSE said, “Giving back by volunteering our time, donating money and other essentials is at the core of our culture at the NSE.
In addition, we believe that promoting gender equality and diversity is a critical success factor for global economic prosperity.
