EMpower 50 Ethnic Minority Future Leaders

The EMpower 50 Ethnic Minority Future Leaders lists celebrates inspirational people of colour who are not senior in their organisations but are making a significant contribution to ethnic minority people at work.

All the executives listed were nominated by peers and employees. Nominations were then reviewed by EMpower’s judging panel, who scored nominees on: the influence of their role; their impact on ethnic minority inclusion inside and outside the workplace; and their business achievements.

Ademola co-founded Africa Arbitration, a platform designed to promote Black arbitration practitioners in the UK, US, Canada and globally. Africa Arbitration features a Rising Star and Personality of the Month series, promoting the profiles of arbitration practitioners, and an “Opportunities for Africans” column where commercial law opportunities from around the world are shared with BAME lawyers and students.

As Vice President of the Association of Young Arbitrators in Africa and Chair of the organisation’s Mentorship Committee, Ademola successfully initiated a mentorship programme, by linking young Black practitioners with leading practitioners from around the globe. He is a founding member of the Africa Arbitration Academy, an institution designed to equip arbitration practitioners in Africa, by providing them with free advanced arbitration training at leading commercial law firms in London.
