The awe-inspiring conference will be taking place at Splendour Event Center, Imo International Convention Center Owerri, Imo State. 

In a press release signed by the Convener of the event, Mr. Ihemegbulem Gerald C. (Sire Gerald) he revealed that the primary goal of the Conference is to bring together a broad diversity of leaders and emerging leaders, who are concerned about Women’s and girls’ unique needs, regarding Women’s relevance and dignity in Africa. He further stated that this 2020 Conference is aimed at making women and girls understand that greatness is not gender sensitive and the need to get a life before becoming a wife, adding that the educative and informative lectures that will be delivered that day will touch the lives of the participants, invitees and spectators in no small measure.

It could be recalled that the Dignified Womanhood Platform has in the past organized several mind blowing educative programs such as Miss Dignity Contest (Crowning of the Beauty in Dignity), Dignity Hall of Fame Awards, Skill Acquisition Programs, Girl Child Campaign and Sensitization, Essay Competition, Innovation Challenge and lots more.

According to the Founder of this honourable Platform, M. Gerald Ihemegbulem, the platform honours women of the past who stood for change and fought for the rights and the dignity we live and enjoy today, the women of the present who use their voices to help make the world a better place for Women and the Women of the future who will continue to champion women’s voices to break barriers and keep visible women’s achievements. 

While speaking on his driving force towards the program, Mr. Gerald emphasized on his strong believe in gender equity, women grown and development and his dislike for any form of violence, abuse, rejection and stigmatization against women.
