Also, the bank supported the Association of Professional Women Bankers on its Corporate Dinner, themed “Funding Infrastructural Development in an Emerging Economy” in furtherance its commitment to enabling women in banking in Nigeria. The Association of Professional Women Bankers (APWB) is the female arm of the prestigious Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN).
