In a remarkable display of commitment to fostering mentorship and empowering women in a sustainable economy, Dr. Tinuade Sanda, Managing Director/CEO of Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC), has joined other influential women on the global stage for the launch of the Women in the Sustainable Economy (WISE) initiative. This initiative, spearheaded by Vice President Kamala Harris in the United States, focuses on connecting aspiring female leaders with accomplished businesswomen in the green and blue industries.

WISE Initiative: Bridging Gaps and Creating Opportunities

Dr. Tinuade’s participation in the WISE launch is a testament to the recognition of women’s contributions in the sustainability sector. The program holds the potential to redefine our approach to sustainable development, with women taking the lead in driving positive change.

New York Business Now gathered insights on the WISE Initiative’s recent launch during APEC Economic Leaders Week. Vice President Kamala Harris announced a significant commitment of over $163 million from the United States government to enhance women’s economic participation in historically underrepresented sectors like energy, fisheries, waste recycling, forest management, and conservation. Additionally, more than $900 million in commitments from various entities aim to bolster women’s economic engagement in clean energy, fisheries, recycling, forest management, and environmental conservation.

A Pivotal Moment in Global Empowerment

The launch of the WISE initiative aligns with the Biden-Harris administration’s overarching goal to advance the 2023 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) theme of “Creating a Resilient and Sustainable Future for All.” This initiative marks a pivotal moment at the intersection of women’s empowerment and the pursuit of a more sustainable and equitable economy.

Tinuade’s involvement not only highlights her dedication but also underscores the collaborative efforts needed to address gender disparities in various industries. The WISE Initiative emerges as a beacon of hope, signaling a collective commitment to advancing women’s roles in shaping a resilient and sustainable global future.

The platform seeks to equip mentees with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their chosen fields. By facilitating connections between aspiring female leaders and established businesswomen, EmHERging strives to dismantle barriers and pave the way for a more inclusive professional landscape.

In conclusion, Dr. Tinuade Sanda’s participation in the WISE Initiative, alongside Vice President Kamala Harris and other influential women, signifies a significant step towards creating a more inclusive and sustainable global economy.
