Nigerian Women in Public Relations has reiterated its commitment to team bonding and cohesion as it prepares to host the second edition of  its new initiative dubbed The Movie Night Out and presented under the hashtag #NGWiPRnightout on social media platforms.

The Movie Night Out is a monthly virtual hangout aimed to foster team spirit and camaraderie between the volunteers and members of Nigerian Women in Public Relations. As Nigerian Women in Public Relations upholds global network expansion, The Movie Night Out also welcomes all communications professionals upon preliminary application. The attendees relax and share their lessons from the movie during a closing networking session. The first edition of this initiative took off on October 1st with a movie titled “The Intern” (2015). The presenter and one of the volunteers, Varya Astapova, commented on the edition: “As PR specialists, we should never stop learning. Our key task is to be observant and get precious takeaways from everything around us including movies. “The Intern” taught me that there is no age limit to self-development, work-life balance is critical and sometimes it is necessary to take a break and reconsider priorities to make the only right choice”.

The Founder, Tolulope Olorundero, commended the initiative launched by her organisation: “We persevere in keeping all our projects geared to enhancing social ties within our team. Worthy to note, The Movie Night Out is a community-led and driven initiative that corroborates our thoughts that we must continue to design community-first programs given the sometimes isolating nature of our work as public relations professionals. For me, it is a true sign that team bonding is on the right track in Nigerian Women in PR. We value out-of-work hours spent together whenever our busy schedules provide such an opportunity. There is a whole lot to learn in an informal ambience.”

The second edition is planned on 27th November 2021 and will commence by 7pm with the movie “Living with Baami ” on Zoom. The registration link will be released for interested communications professionals who indicate their interest by 8th November, 2021.
