Nigerian-born, dyslexic social entrepreneur James Adeleke is on a mission to change the world (or at least to make it fairer).
He is the CEO and founder of Generation Success, an award-winning social enterprise that works with 65+ employers in the UK and the Republic of Ireland to tackle the social inequalities in society and connect diverse talent to careers. This is delivered through their mentoring, training and early careers recruitment services.
James started Generation Success after the London riots. Rising from the riots came a desire to be part of the change. Driven by the fundamental belief that your career should not be defined by your birth, and witnessing the struggle that many of his contemporaries in law school faced in their careers, due to social or economic background, James set about taking action.
He is passionate about creating a world where we all have equal access and equal opportunities to achieve our career aspirations. James has formed a first-class advisory board and management team to help him achieve his mission.
Making room for diversity and inclusion goes beyond who you hire – it's also about who you choose to buy from. Shake up your supply chain with these five top tips from James Adeleke of social enterprise Generation Success.
