This case tells the story of a young Nigerian woman, covering her progress from the clerical job she took upon leaving secondary school, the difficulties she encountered in gaining admission into a university in spite of her excellent grades, her use of vacation time to do temporary work at her previous organisation, her joining that bank after graduation and her professional development on the job and through an executive part-time MBA. The case aims to: (1) making participants aware of the factors involved in career development and the challenges encountered by career women; and (2) investigate practical ways of handling discrimination and making one's mark in the workplace.
