LEX LUMINAR CELEBRATES INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
To celebrate International Women’s Day, the Entertainment and Intellectual Property law team of Lex Luminar, Abuja, in partnership with George Okoro Studios and House 43, hosted an intimate gathering of distinguished women to a private breakfast with the theme, “The Great Company of Women (Celebrating Womanhood)” on Saturday, 26th March, at House 43 Gana Street, Maitama, Abuja.
The event was a gathering of women across different generations. It featured panel discussions from women who had successfully broken the bias in their respective industries. The style was not to “have a roundtable” but sit comfortably and share stories. One of the highlights of the event was the 10-15 minutes speed networking session.
Spheres represented at the event were Fashion, Media, Entertainment, STEM/Tech, Politics, Government/Governance, Advocacy, Law, Healthcare, Private Sector and Socialpreneur.The opening remarks were given by Chinenye Onyemaizu, founder and managing partner of Lex Luminar and convener The Great Company of Women.
The panel session was led and moderated by Winifred Alobo-Agogo, business development manager, Oil and Gas, of the Firm, with panellists including Nikki Odu-Khiran, founder of Nikki Khiran Couture and executive editor, LeVogue Magazine; Olabisi Soyebo (SAN), partner, Abdullahi Ibrahim & Co; Ogechi Isabel Ochi (a.k.a. DJ Bella) and Isi Juliet Ikhayere, principal partner, Makhoms-J Attorneys.
The aim of the gathering was to bridge the generational gap amongst women, where women saw themselves as allies and not each other’s competition.
The event was concluded with a firm belief that the conversations held in that room will influence planning, partnerships and dialogue. Closing remarks were sent in by Aifuwa Efosa Igbinoba, partner at the firm.Lex Luminar is a client-centred boutique law firm nestled in the serene neighbourhood of Maitama, Abuja, with experienced dispute resolution lawyers who think outside the box whilst having their clients at the core of their practice.
