Brig. Gen. Rose Keravuori, deputy director of intelligence, U.S. Africa Command, in coordination with the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria's Office of Security Cooperation, visited Nigeria in March 2022 to conduct key leader engagements with the Nigerian military.
As part of the visit, Keravuori hosted a women’s luncheon with 17 female officers from each of the Armed Forces of Nigeria military services and the commander of the Nigeria Army Women’s corps. Discussions focused on promoting women, peace, and security objectives and deliberations on the role women play in peacekeeping and security.
Participants exchanged questions about the role of females in the U.S. military, best practices for leading women in service, and the importance of seeking mentorship and using opportunities to mentor others.
