Ken Osivwemu

Ken co-led the evolution of the previous Africa Forum at Barclays to the current incredibly successful Barclays Black Professionals Forum and in Oct 2016 became its co-chair, under the EMBRACE Multicultural Network. He has assembled a team of equally passionate colleagues and together under his leadership and direction they have designed and delivered a range of initiatives aimed at supporting the firm in attracting, developing and promoting talent of black and ethnic minority origin. In addition, for the first time in the 10+ years since Ken had been at Barclays, he ensured that Black History month was promoted and celebrated on a large scale in 2017 with a variety of events culminating in a fashion show with Barclays colleagues modelling clothing designed and made by black owned start-up fashion businesses. Outside of work, Ken volunteers with mentoring charity Urban Synergy, based in his home town of Lewisham.
