The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SpringRock Group, Mr. Eke U Eke alongside some of his female colleagues, met with The Green Girl Company Chief Executive Officer, Dr May Ikeora and the current Miss Nigeria, Chidinma Aaron on Wednesday, 2nd October,2019 to discuss on partnership and support for The Green Girl Project, which is aimed at supporting girls to build on their aspiration to accomplish heights they themselves may not readily know possibly existed within them especially in subject-areas that oftentimes girls tend to be excluded like Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The project also includes provision of necessary guidance and mentorship to the young girls.
Mr Eke, talked on the stance SpringRock has taken on supporting women empowerment, as women make up half of the world’s population and they also provide a very valuable resource and talent pool with their unique behavioural skills, dedication, focus and talents. He also highlighted the policy of SpringRock, that females would fill up more than 50% of positions at SpringRock Group.
The Green Girl Company is having its Raising Girls Summit on Friday, 11th October 2019 and SpringRock is Sponsoring the Summit as a support of the efforts of Green Girls Project to empower young girls who are the future generation. During the summit one of our female Drilling Engineers, Mrs Obiageli Ogbuefi will speak at this event.
