Adese Okojie, BWHR founder has been a monumental force in giving me the guidance, advice and confidence to navigate the world of work as a black woman.
She encouraged me to be unafraid of raising my voice and gave me formidable tools to help articulate my needs and wants.
Her generosity of time and spirit know no bounds. She approaches everything with heart, conviction, wisdom and a deep knowledge that comes from what is clearly a long and experienced career in HR. She knows the system, and knows exactly how to encourage women to work it to their advantage rather than feeling the odds are stacked against them.
I believe that every woman – whether she is in a period of peace or trouble, of constance or transition – has the advice of someone like Adese in their toolkit.
