DNS Women Nigeria endorses L’Oreal, UNESCO Women in Science Manifesto

A gender parity group, the Domain Name System (DNS) Women Nigeria, has endorsed the Women in Science Manifesto being championed by L’Oreal in partnership with the United Nations Education, Science and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), reports ITRealms.

President and founder of (DNS) Women in Nigeria, Nkemdilim Nweke made this disclosure in Lagos, Friday in a chat with news men after endorsing the manifesto as the 435th signer
of the For Women in Science Manifesto on behalf of her organization.

She said that DNS Women Nigeria, a not-for-profit making organization went through the manifesto and understood every part of it, hence, her group endorsed the article, which is an extended call to service for more women in the field of science.

According to her, women in science like in the DNS industry globally have the power to change the world they want to see.

Nweke invited more women groups to join forces for such proclamations capable of spurring more women in the field of science and technologies.

She maintained that DNS Women Nigeria is keen and ever ready to partner with like-minded organizations like L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science emancipation.

Reacting to the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science recognition ceremony held yesterday in Parish, the founder of DNS Women Nigeria extended her congratulations to all the winners, and mostly the five leading women scientists and 15 promising young researchers who were honoured at the 18th edition of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Ceremony at the Maison de la Mutualité in Paris.

She singled out Irina Bokova, Director General of UNESCO and Jean-Paul Agon, Chairman and CEO of L’Oréal and Chairman of the L’Oréal Foundation for taking the opportunity to launch the For Women in Science Manifesto. 

Pointing out that just like this Manifesto aims to take a stand against the under-representation of women in the sciences, DNS Women Nigeria is ready to collaborate with relevant organisations to enthrone similar stand within the Nigeria’s Domain Name industry.

The manifesto, Nweke noted, is available on so that everyone can, in turn, support this cause.
