Chinwe Odimba-Chapman

Chinwe co-founded the Clifford Chance Black & Minority Ethnic network in 2015 with the primary aim of making BME issues a business priority for management at Clifford Chance. As co-chair she has been instrumental in raising awareness, both within the firm and externally. She has been particularly focused on fostering and encouraging coaching and mentoring to assist the ongoing development of BME colleagues. As part of this, she has spearheaded the introduction of a bespoke three-part coaching programme and is currently organising a series of lunch and learn sessions for senior management in the firm to highlight some of the key issues facing BME employees. Externally, she has recently been appointed as a Professional Ambassador for Aspiring Solicitors, joined the BEIS Professional and Business Services Council – Skills and Inclusion Taskforce, has been identified by the Clifford Chance Women’s Network as a ‘role model’, and was one of 20 women across the firm recently profiled in the Legal 500 publication ‘Advice to My Younger Self: Reflections of Successful Women Lawyers’.
