It takes a community that supports Women into Leadership Positions – Ugochi Oluigbo

Ugochi Oluigbo, is a passionate freelance environmental journalist recognised for her creative storytelling, insightful interviews, and engaging content around climate on TV and online. For Oluigbo, motherhood is a defining moment in a woman’s career trajectory. To excel and crash the glass ceiling, she explains women need all the support they can overcome imposed barriers to advance in their career. It takes a community of friends, familiar environment, spousal support, a great network of colleages and circle of influence she says to succeed, especially during the phase of early motherhood and parenthood.

Now learning French as her new language living in France, Oluigbo takes us on her remarkable journey in the media and the stories behind her many awards. One of the insights she shared with us is to always remember to draw the line between volunteerism and charging a fee as a financial changing mindset for more financial independence and success.
