About Me

Motivated by the desire to reach out and give back to the community, Elsie Ijorogu-Reed sought to empower the indigenous women of Delta State and support their needs and basic human rights, thus forming Delta Women. She took Delta Women into the blogosphere with the present Blogging endeavour. Under Elsie's aegis, the entire Delta Women team comes together from different parts of the world.

Elsie is the Founder and CEO of Delta Women, an NGO based out of Houston, Texas, for women. With campaigns using the Internet and Social Media to focus on global issues challenging women world over, Delta Women has credentials that speak volumes of its work on Women’s rights. She holds a Master’s degree in information systems management, and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration. Among her many IT certificates, she holds the IBM Expert and is a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer besides also being a Microsoft Certified Database Administrator. She also has 16 years of experience with IT-consulting as a Database Administrator, Project management and now Business intelligence consultancy. Elsie has worked with the FDIC America, the American Federation of teachers, and Accenture.

Armed with an MBA and also several IT certifications, Elsie has worked as an IT consultant for companies like Citibank, American Red Cross, the US Department of Health, Verizon and Alcon/Novadis in USA. besides also Boots and NHS in the UK, TDIC Abu Dhabi and GBM Qatar. Elsie has been instrumental in creating paradigm shifts in Nigerian society - through the opening of the first school in Okoijorogu, the creation of health care and eye care camps for several people in Delta State, and through sexual harassment awareness drives. Elsie has been awarded by several international forums including the United Nations' Volunteering system through her NGO's efforts, for two years in a row, and most recently in Ireland by WOL, for 2013.
