Meet Iké Adeyemi, Senior Legal Counsel and Corporate Secretary at Clorox

Hey Boss,

I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with Iké Adeyemi in my garden back in 2019 (the good ole days) and I thought I would resurface that discussion in this week's blog post!

Not only is Iké a supportive Bossy customer, she is a mom to 4 children, wife to an amazing guy, and a total BADASS corporate lawyer at The Clorox Company.  Most of all, I LOVE Iké's spirit.  She's always so positive and effusive in her reflections.  I was grateful that she agreed to sit with me to talk about her life as a working mother AND a focused career professional. 

This is particularly great for anyone who is interested in a career in law.

Apart from the precious time that I spent learning about Iké's career as a lawyer, I was intrigued to learn about how she evaluates her various roles in life.  This is also a great listen for people who sit at various intersectional identities.

This recording was originally shared on youtube in a 5 minute version but this is the longer episode.  

 Enjoy!

Bumble is a BIG deal y'all!

What's most exciting about this news is not everything else that I said above but her journey and the product that she created.  She was one of the early employees of dating app, Tinder, but left that company with a fair bit of drama and legal issues that resulted in s settlement.  But Whitney didn't let disappointment stop her from pursuing her dreams.  She went on to start Bumble, another dating app, whose core philosophy is empowering women to take the first move!  It's a simple different but it made ALL the difference and she created a juggernaut that will go beyond dating into a host of categories that we are yet to watch unfold.
