Women Working for Environmental Sustainability with Olanike Olugboji

As climate change becomes more and more apparent an issue, working together with the people most affected by it is imperative to adapting and slowing down the rapid changes. But in Nigeria and other places where the women working the land aren’t even allowed to own it, their voices and innovative ideas are often left out of the conversation.

Today, Olanike Olugboji is here to talk about her work raising women’s voices and her mission to expose women to new technologies, allowing them to lead the way. This week’s episode 74 of How Women Inspire Podcast is about women working for environmental sustainability!

In this episode of How Women Inspire Podcast, Olanike Olugboji is sharing the importance of involving women in climate change technologies and actionable steps you can take right now to improve your leadership qualities.

Olanike Olugboji is the executive director of the Women’s Initiative for Sustainable Environment and the lead for the WISE Women’s Renewable Energy Training. At a very young age, she took a journey into the world of social activism where she founded the environmental management and protection network. Olanike’s work became centered on engaging grassroots women and natural resource stewarding and peacemaking. To date, her efforts have directly impacted over 20,000 women at the grassroots.
