gemStones Club, an exclusive female club, and an initiative of gemWOMAN, was established to build a community of vibrant women, from diverse professional and socio-cultural background with vast experiences that can positively shape each other’s world and impact a new generation of women, by associating, relating, connecting, and sharing ideas.
Who We Are
This is an exclusive female club that provides a forum for women to network; forging a bond with others, such synergy that empowers them to maximise their potential. gemstones is a considerably small intimate group of Christian women, who desire to maximally fulfill their roles as wife, mother, homemaker, entrepreneurs, executives, etc.; hence, they share, learn, and pray together on diverse pertinent issues ranging from finance, sex, relationship, homemaking, health, to entrepreneurship, parenting, etc.
The club usually holds quarterly meetings, which afford members the opportunity to engage in diverse impactful and interesting activities, ranging from financial seminars, spa sessions, luncheons, book club, amongst others.
In 2012, the club held an open-house financial breakfast meeting with the theme- Breaking Financial Frontiers at Protea Hotel, GRA Ikeja. Speakers at the meeting were- Tomi Shomefun, Executive Director, UBA and Iquo Ukoh, Executive Director, Nestle Plc. It was a truly enlightening event, as we received commendations from attendees.
This year’s edition of the financial meeting tagged- Raising Global Female Entrepreneurs held on the 10th of May, 2014, and will feature the following speakers: Prof. Ade Adefuye- Nigerian Ambassador to the United States of America; Odein Ajumogobia- Former Minister of Petroleum and Foreign affairs; Funmi Ajila- President FADAN; Yewande Zacchaeus- CEO, Eventful; and Ini Onuk, CEO, ThistlePraxis Consulting. The event is aimed at empowering women to be positioned for global relevance.
Often times, women are caught in the web of daily routines from playing the dutiful wife and the ever-energetic mother, to the bracing office executive or business woman. That is apart from unending religious and social commitments. On the whole, many women are hardly able to find time or appropriate forum to regularly get refreshed, or live a more balanced life. In line with the vision of gemWOMAN, gemStones club was established to give the contemporary woman a support system that would revive and boost her zest for living, build a common ground for networking, and develop vibrant minds to meet present day challenges in career, family, finance, relationships and day to day living.
