Back from a brief hiatus, this edition focuses on women in leadership. In the spotlight is Yetunde Badmos— your not-at-all-average lady. She has so many things going on in her portfolio that show she is a good multitasker.

She had a lot to share regarding the challenges women face in leadership and more.
Read excerpts from the interesting e-interview below:
What do you do as an Honourable Member of the University of Ibadan Students' Representative Council (SRC) 9th assembly?
As an honourable member of the Student Representative Council (SRC) of the University of Ibadan, Queen Idia Hall constituency, I am typically responsible for representing the interests and concerns of the 100 students in my hall of residence. I serve as an advocate for students, voicing their opinions, needs, and concerns to the school administration, faculty, and other relevant stakeholders. Also, as a member of the transport committee, I am responsible for coordinating various transportation services provided by the school so as to ensure efficient and timely services. I also advocate for the transportation needs and interests of the students in my constituency to the university administration or relevant stakeholders. As a team, we raise concerns, suggest improvements, and work towards enhancing transportation services based on student feedback and requirements.
As a woman leader, what are some challenges women face in leadership and how can they overcome them?
