Dr Nneka Abulokwe

As the first black senior executive in Sopra Steria, a leading European digital transformation firm, Nneka used her platform to inspire and motivate ethnic minority people across the organisation and farther afield. Following a very successful 25yrs + corporate career, she set up MicroMax Consulting, a board advisory service, to make a greater impact and inspire beyond the bounds of tech industry and to contribute positively to society and foster diversity and inclusion in the workplace. This is being achieved by bringing diversity to the top table by serving on several Boards and shaping the strategic & diversity agendas of large organisation and professional institutions. Through MicroMax, Nneka acts as an ambassador and role model for BAME women in business. Nneka is the first Black woman to be admitted to The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists where she is actively engaged in promoting diversity and continuous giving activities. Externally, Nneka serves on several boards including being the first Black female chair of the Board Nominations Committee for the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA). She recruited a diverse 2018/19 & 2019/20 board in addition to speaking at board nominations and membership events on board governance and the need for women and people of BAME backgrounds in good governance. She also takes on external mentoring relationships with young people entering the workforce and has been recognised in numerous lists and articles for her work in diversity.
