SpecialityCEO & Founder of Black Women in HR

Adese established black woman in Human Resources in June 2019 out of her own personal experiences as a black woman. The platform was originally founded as a networking forum. However, following the spotlight on diversity and racial inequality BWHR has expanded its focus to supporting its community with education, empowerment and recruitment.

She achieved an empowerment award for her role in the development of black women from Nations of Women organisation. Her mission is to educate organisations on the positives of taking an intersectional approach in their recruitment practice on race and gender. 

Adese’s vision is to empower black professionals globally through her voice and platform to connect and win with intention!
