Join entrepreneur and founder of the UK Black Business Show, Raphael Sofoluke, and Lead Regional Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Program Manager at one of the top 4 tech companies in the world, Opeyemi Sofoluke, as they explore Black identity in the workplace.
In conversation, this entrepreneurial husband and wife will expose the obstacles that limit opportunity for Black professional progress, and discuss how to challenge racial stereotypes, be productive, find purpose and ultimately design a successful career.
While the world endeavours to become more inclusive, and businesses strive to eradicate discrimination in the workplace, there are still societal stereotypes that can hinder the progression of Black professionals. Both Raphael and Opeyemi have experienced first-hand what it means to be Black in the working world, and the adversities and prejudices that many can be faced with. However, they also know how to take those struggles and turn them into success. In this event, Opeyemi and Raphael will share their own experiences, challenges and insights but also offer practical guidance to help others realise their goals.
Whether you are a member of the Black community starting out or already working in the corporate world, or an ally looking for practical and honest advice, this event will empower, inspire, and educate.
