Keystone Bank empowers women at 2017 Okpekpe Road Race

Keystone Bank held the reins of the Women Empowerment segment at the recently concluded International Okpekpe Road Race. The Okpekpe Road Race, an annual 10km marathon organised by Pamodzi Sports Marketing Nigeria Ltd in partnership with the Edo State Government, is recognised by the International Amateur Athletics Federation (IAAF) and attracts competitors from all over Africa.
The Acting Managing Director of Keystone Bank, Mr. Hafiz Bakare, stated that Keystone Bank remained committed to supporting initiatives that empower women and youths, explaining that this was in line with the pillars of the bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). He added that women are the bedrock of social and moral values and as such support for programmes like this is not only significant but essential.
As part of the Women Empowerment Programme sponsored by Keystone Bank, 10 indigenous women were trained and provided with start-up kits in various vocational skills. Speaking at the event, the Group Head, Oil and Gas (Corporate Banking) at Keystone Bank, Mrs. Nnenna Kayode-Lawal, said, “beyond being one of our CSR pillars, the focus on supporting women in the society stems from the fact that women remain the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world.
