Aisha Adedeji has been named on the HERoes Top 100 Women Future Leaders list 2021.

The alumna is the Digital Engagement Manager at Barclays Bank and is a member of the Diversity and Inclusion Council of Barclays, as well as the Black Professional Forum and the Women’s Inclusion Network.

Aisha has hosted various events including Women In Business conferences held at Barclays’ head office. The events were hosted internally but were open to external female entrepreneurs or aspiring entrepreneurs. The impact of the events on the bank’s reputation and income included the recruitment of more than 20 new female business clients who were impressed by the offering.

The former student is also part of Ethnically Diverse Founders, a programme launching this year aimed at educating businesses on a variety of things including access to finance, digital engagement, and growth. She has innovated the programme to ensure that the selection process includes a 50:50 male to female ratio.

Aisha is a member of the Alumni Advisory Board and graduated with a degree in Banking Finance and Management in 2015.

Congratulations, Aisha.
