“You are No Less Than Anyone Else” — An IWD Interview with Yvonne on Equity & Diversity.

Indicina’s culture has been of excellence and diversity, where talents are nurtured to blossom, and every team member knows how valuable their contributions are. If you’ve ever met our CEO, Yvonne, you would have experienced this in one form or another. For a lot of Indicina employees, it was within the 20 minutes she spent with them during the final stage of their hiring process.

With a background in Software Engineering, and time spent working at Pan-African Banking Group to drive inclusion within a few key markets, she conceived and birthed Indicina. Over time, she has proven not only to embrace equity but has also built a conducive environment where women can thrive.

In this interview with her, she speaks more about how she has been able to achieve this and the challenges she has encountered being a leader.

Miriam: Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your journey to becoming Indicina’s CEO?

M: What are some of the measures that you have put in place to encourage everyone at Indicina to embrace equity?

M: What are some of the biggest challenges you have faced as a woman in leadership roles throughout your career?

M: What does embracing equity mean to you?

M: For some tea, what are some of your favourite things about being a female leader in a country like Nigeria? Are there any positives to be leveraged by more women?

M: Given the opportunity to build a utopian world from the ground up, where equity is embraced and everyone feels included. How would you approach it?

M: What areas do you think lack equity the most, and what can society do to change that?

In conclusion, we asked her a question we believed the response would inspire women aspiring to become leaders that will shape the future of our society and ecosystem.

M: What advice would you give to other women who aspire to leadership positions?

A powerful end to a rewarding interview session.

We absolutely enjoyed speaking with our CEO, Yvonne, and digging into her world of knowledge and experience regarding equity and diversity culture. We hope this little interview inspires women to always keep their heads up, and leaders to continually strive towards building a culture that is more equitable for women.
