It is with immense joy and gladness that I welcome all Delegates and Participants to 4th Annual Conference of the NBA Women Forum (NBAWF).

I am aware that this year’s Annual Conference aligns with NBAWF’s vision of uniting female lawyers in order to strategize and position Nigerian female lawyers for global success.

It is noteworthy that this year’s Annual Conference is themed “Beyond the Balance Sheet: Redefining Success for Women in Law.” This theme is quite apposite, and aligns the 2024 IWD theme, “Inspire Inclusion.”

As you gather to examine the traditional metrics for evaluating female lawyers, demystifying them, and inspiring diverse definitions of a successful legal career, please count on me as a keen partner in this worthy endveaour.

I commend the leadership of the NBAWF for its foresight and wish you all fruitful deliberations and quality networking at the conference.

Dr. Gerald Abonyi
Pioneer Chairman, NBA Obolo-Afor Branch
