The International Women’s Society has appointed Ego Boyo as its president.
The induction took place in Lagos during the society’s 60th investiture.
The investiture, which was compered by the IWS Programmes Secretary, Jasmine Tukur, and its Image Consultant, Ifeoma Williams, also celebrated women doing extraordinary work and changing lives through a photographic series displayed around the venue.
The event was a “call to arms” to young women to embrace charitable services, while pursuing their careers, the IWS said in a statement.
Boyo, in her acceptance speech, talked about the importance of women, children and youths, saying, “This year, our focus is to strengthen existing partnerships with individuals and organisations that have a focus on women, children and youth affairs, as well as building new alliances.
“Therefore, we are planning to open our events calendar to allow for more meaningful collaborations.”
