Amina Oyagbola has worked in various sectors of the economy over the last 30 years. This includes legal consulting, banking & finance, oil & gas, telecommunications and business administration. In these roles, Amina has observed a trend in internal communications. Several organizations do not pay sufficient attention to internal communications and this has led to low engagement levels with an impact on output and productivity. Instead, internal communications should be a strategic tool in business.

The WISCAR Project
The foundation of WISCAR was inspired by a keenly felt societal need. During her long professional and corporate career the founder, Amina Oyagbola constantly recognized a gaping need for a new institutional framework. This framework would provide professional women with inspiration, motivation, guidance, and support to help them better navigate their different career pathways. Mrs Oyagbola very quickly realized that in Africa generally and Nigeria specifically many bright female career prospects are lighted very early by an absence of any form of support network or mentorship framework on which such prospect could draw for a proper road map to career success.
