Otegha Uwagba is a writer, speaker, brand consultant and founder of ‘Women Who’ a community for female creatives in corporate sectors. Otegha who graduated from Oxford with a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics founded ‘Women Who’ to connect, support and inspire creative working women.
“I started Women Who in 2016, with one aim in mind – to foster connections between like-minded women. It was (and still is!) a one-woman team, but the community has since mushroomed to encompass thousands of women around the world, and I host regular events, produce online content, and write a weekly newsletter all with the aim of inspiring and informing working women”
The initiative supports women through carefully curated content in form of podcasts, newsletters, articles and networking events. As well as founding the initiative, Otegha also authored ‘A Little Black Book’ which is a tool kit for women.
Her creative and professional pursuits have had her work in organisations like ‘Vice’ and world renowned creative agency ‘AMV BBDO’. As a compere, speaker at moderator, she has facilitated events for organisations like ‘The London Design Festival’, ‘News International’ and ‘General Assembly’.
Otegha’s creativity has not gone unnoticed. She was recently profiled alongside other black women in the 2018 Forbes 30 under 30 list of ‘Young Disruptors, Entrepreneurs and Innovators from Europe, who are Changing the World across 10 Industries.
