Claudine Adeyemi joins YSYS as its first ever Ecosystem Relations Lead

YSYS are excited to welcome Claudine Adeyemi who has stepped up as its first ever Ecosystem Relations Lead. She has big plans to connect community leaders and stakeholders together, to foster new relationships that positively impacts the startup community.

Claudine is the founder of Career Ear, and a qualified lawyer at Mishcon De Reya. In May 2018 she was named EMpower #1 Ethnic Minority Future Leader as presented by the FT and sits on the board of the Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion. Claudine is an example of how black women do five things at the same time and does them incredibly well. Her deep commitment to supporting the next generation and leadership qualities is why we have no doubt that she will inspire others in the ecosystem to also build together.

“YSYS is more than just a tech startup community, it’s a family. The members of the community range from founders to developers to creatives. Whilst we support one another it’s also important to ensure that our community is supported by the wider ecosystem and that we, as an organisation, play our role in improving the representation of underrepresented individuals within the ecosystem and have an impact on the wider ecosystem in terms of ensuring that it is inclusive regardless of an individual’s demographics.
I’m delighted to take on this role to help tackle some of the diversity and inclusion issues within the tech ecosystem with YSYS.” — Claudine
