SWIT Promotes Tax Advocacy Among Women

The Lagos State Chapter of
Society of Women in Taxation (SWIT) has revealed that it is committed to promoting tax knowledge to women in society.

In a statement released on Monday, SWIT said it would be educating women during its upcoming tax forum for corporate and professional women in Lagos State. The theme of the forum is "Building a new Nigerian tax culture through women."

The Chairperson of SWIT in Lagos State, Mrs Dena-Rose Ajayi, said women were nation builders. “Thus, there is a need to properly enlighten them on tax policy issues,” she said.

She disclosed that participants at the forum would include women “who are captains of industries and successful women leaders in both private and public establishments.” She also said the event would also feature award session during which deserving individuals and organisations would be recognised for their contributions to development of taxation in Nigeria.

According to the statement, the chapter recently held its regular tax programme for the youth by organising an inaugural tax debate for the secondary school pupils both in public and private schools in the state.
