A must-attend Black History Month event with the inimitable Abadesi Osunsade.
In honour of Black History Month, we are delighted to be joined by the phenomenal Abadesi Osunsade to discuss Black Excellence and celebrate the pioneering work of Black artists, entrepreneurs and creatives over the past year.
As a black woman in tech, Abadesi has blazed a trail, shining a much needed light on a different, better vision for her sector: one where every person – regardless of their identity or background – has the opportunity to excel in the workplace. While championing some amazing success stories, we will also explore some of the challenges that still exist and the decisive action all of us can take to create positive change.
This event is open to all Huckletree members as well as our wider community of entrepreneurs, innovators, creators, and friends.
Abadesi is the Founder and CEO of HustleCrew. She has been included on more power and tech influencers lists than can be included here, suffice it to say she’s a total rock star.
