Emeka Okwu

Working in a recruitment team, Emeka personally captures the data for BAME employees and ensures that they are assigned to mentors following induction. He also ensures a thorough understanding of the review and promotion process, and encourages BAME employees to join a network by inviting them to diversity events that are relevant to them. Emeka has recently been asked by the business to be an executive member of the ALL4EMEA diversity council, and was actively involved in designing, implementing and monitoring D&I strategies. Mentorship is an activity which Emeka takes very seriously; he mentors young black kids on being influencers in the society, and shares his story of how he has excelled as an immigrant; professionally and academically. Currently, Emeka is a doctoral student at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge and his research is on Equality and Diversity. He also takes part in a lot of community volunteering, helping clean public parks and streets.
