It is International Women’s Day, a day set aside to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women – while also making a clarion call to break the bias against women.

This year’s celebration is centred on the theme “Break the bias.” The theme seeks to expose and advocate against biases women suffer in the corporate space, politics, social institutions, and even religious organisations.

However, this year’s celebration will not be complete without recognising and applauding the female movers and shakers of DO-Take Action who work tirelessly reach our goals and are committed to shooting us to the stars.

So, here it goes, in no particular order:

Meet Precious Ebere, co-founder and CEO of DO-Take Action.

It is noteworthy to add that Precious is a Chevening scholar currently running a Master’s program in Social and Public Policy.

What does Precious do to blow off steam? She travels, meets and engages people.
