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!

Talking Equitable Design with Aubrey Blanche
Talking Equitable Design with Aubrey Blanche

I fully expected Aubrey to be amazing and knowledgeable about Equitable Design but I wasn't quite prepared for her to be so darn likable while doing it!  So it does help that she showed up to the IG live with beautiful pink hair, a cool pair of glasses, AND wearing our HUSTLE lipstick.  She then proceeded to drop real gems about what it's like to live and operate at the highest echelon of the tech industry at the intersection of being a Mexican American woman with indigenous roots recognizing that she is white-passing while identifying as bisexual and living with bipolar disorder.  When I tell you that it was a refreshing and really open conversation about how you effectively use empathy and lived experiences to design processes and systems within companies that make them work for everyone - IT WAS.
