Why did you decide to become a mentor for KnowHow Exchange?
"NAWORG is clearly an organization positioned for growth, but it needs assistance from an experienced partner who can help the organization continue to succeed in its work to represent and empower women in Nigeria, and other parts of Africa. The organization needs help with areas such as strategic alliances, capacity building, organizational governance, which are a perfect fit for ASAE’s expertise. We are thrilled to be able to share our knowledge and resources with the group, and look forward to providing a helping hand moving forward."
What potential do you see in your partner organization?
"NAWORG’s leadership has expressed a keen interest in learning about association management, and has shown commitment to strengthening the organization and the resources it provides to its members. As an association of women entrepreneurs working to strengthen the role of women leaders in Nigeria, NAWORG has clearly demonstrated the potential to be an organization that’s only going to continue to grow and increase its importance on the local and regional level."
