Octagon Financial Services Zambia Champions Women’s Empowerment During Women’s Month

In observance of Women’s Month, Octagon Financial Services Zambia, under the leadership of Managing Director Phyllis Tiller, reaffirms its commitment to women’s empowerment and financial inclusion, emphasizing the critical role of investment in driving progress towards gender equality.

Women’s Month, celebrated globally throughout March, serves as a poignant reminder of the resilience, power, and achievements of women worldwide. While International Women’s Day on March 8th serves as a focal point, the entire month is dedicated to recognizing women’s contributions and addressing the challenges they face.

Ms. Tiller underscores the theme of this year’s International Women’s Day, “Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress,” highlighting the urgency of dismantling barriers that hinder women’s advancement. Despite strides made, women encounter systemic inequalities, limited access to education and healthcare, unequal pay, and underrepresentation in leadership roles.

One crucial area where disparities persist is financial inclusion. Octagon Financial Services Zambia acknowledges these challenges and is dedicated to providing innovative financial solutions tailored to women’s needs.

Through initiatives focused on investment advisory, pension administration, and consulting, Octagon aims to empower women to achieve financial security and participate fully in the economy.

Ms. Tiller emphasizes the importance of not only providing access to financial services but also designing products that address women’s unique challenges. Octagon Africa leads by example, promoting gender diversity within its leadership team and operations to drive meaningful change in the financial services industry.

As Women’s Month celebrations continue, she calls on governments, organizations, and individuals to invest in women, recognizing the transformative impact it has on broader socioeconomic development. By eliminating barriers and creating inclusive financial systems, women can fully participate in and benefit from economic opportunities at all levels.

Under Ms. Tiller’s leadership, Octagon Financial Services Zambia stands as a beacon of empowerment, championing women’s advancement and advocating for a more inclusive and equitable society.
