Join us to hear more about Claudine's entrepreneurial journey and
Following the success of our International Women’s Day Office Hours, we have curated a short series of events showcasing some of the industries most impressive female leaders.
The voices of women leaders are so often erased, whitewashed, or ignored despite women having to work twice as hard to get into positions of power. This series is a way for us to be inspired and champion the huge achievements despite the struggles and inequity faced by women today.
For this session, we are delighted to be joined by Claudine Adeyemi, to hear about her experiences as a Lawyer and Founder of multiple organisations supporting young people today.
The event will begin with an informal Q&A followed by questions from the audience, so come any burning questions prepared!
