SheHive Abuja, which provided young and ambitious women with new skills in climbing the corporate ladder, negotiating, developing a pitch deck, identifying job opportunities, speaking with investors and more, was a highly rated success.
The bootcamp saw 100 attendees over the weekend. On Twitter the #SheHiveAbuja hashtag made 2.5mn impressions in one week, whilst on Instagram the hashtag made over 5.5mn impressions. Participant feedback: 80% of participants gave the event a 5/5 in terms of usefulness with the remaining 20% giving the event a 4/5.
Speakers included the Nigerian Minister for the Environment, Hadiza Bala Usman (co-founder #Bringbackourgirls), Governor el Rufai, leading lawyer Asue Ighodalo as well as MTV Base and The Voice Presenter Stephanie Coker. These speakers covered topics including building a career in the public sector, how to negotiate, public speaking, and how to orchestrate an internationally recognised campaign.
