For good or for bad social media is a major way young people express themselves. Youth via social media find inspiration and connect with people and communities that positively reinforce how they see and perceive themselves. We also know that online spaces just as offline spaces can be a safe haven but can also be dangerous.

This session will serve as a forum to discuss young Nigerians and their modes of self-expression especially in but not limited to the workplace. We’ll look at the direct correlation between self expression and job performance and further explore how one’s choice of self-expression online and offline can actually drive creativity and help an employee perform better at their jobs. Our conversation will also touch upon the “the consequences” of young people openly expressing themselves, specifically how society interprets the physical manifestations of this self-expression. A critical example is how SARS officials are harassing young Nigerians who look “unconventional.”

A key takeaway from this session is how do we put a premium on self-expression and also manage the societal backlash of “being” and “looking” different. The team at Sterling Bank will also share how through the OnePay app they are empowering and enabling self-expression while also protecting their online and offline customers.
