Black Voices Network Career Event Profiles Philosophy Department Alumni
A Black Voices Network event took place on 17 June 2022, which was the first open invitation, in person, alumni careers event, held with the assistance and support of the Department of Philosophy.
A distinguished panel of former alumni, including Vera Okojie (FinTech Analyst at Visa / Founder of Career Confident), Hodo Hassan (Policy Advisor in the Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs), Shore Delano (Digital Project Manager at Magnum Photos/ founder of diverse theatre platform 'The Rendition'), and Gabrielle Oke (actor and visual artist) spoke engagingly to an enthusiastic audience about their career paths and achievements, and the challenges they have encountered on the way to their success. The session was chaired by Jude Folorunso (President of Warwick Philosophy Black Voices Network) and was supported by the Warwick Philosophy Black Voices Network with the generous support of Warwick Enterprise and the Innovation 2022 campaign. It is hoped that this event will become a regular feature in the academic calendar.
