Jennifer Odogwu – Global Diversity and Inclusion Manager at Mimecast

Jennifer is the Global Diversity & Inclusion Lead at Mimecast, responsible for the design, delivery and execution of Mimecast’s diversity, equity, and inclusion goals across their 12 offices globally. She spends her time designing and re-designing inclusive approaches to talent attraction, recruitment, advancement, and employee engagement, whilst partnering with Business Leaders to challenge the status quo and facilitate culture change.

Her career experiences span FTSE 100 companies (incl. Deloitte, Pfizer, UBS) with expertise in Talent Management, Executive & Leadership Development and Diversity & Inclusion.

Jennifer is driven by a sense of purpose to create equitable and enjoyable workplaces that cater to all.

She has an MSc in Human Resource Management and is a member of the Chartered Institute for Personnel & Development.

Giving career advice for women who want to pursue a career in the tech industry, Jennifer said: “Recognise that tech is broad! People automatically think it’s only about tech roles and we all need to be experts in python, with a computer science degree, from a top university. Whilst this is an amazing career path, the industry offers a range of other cool career opportunities beyond traditional tech roles, such as marketing, communications, product design, etc. Keep an open mind, figure out what you’re passionate about and take steps to learn about this career. I personally love LinkedIn as a career hub – you have access to a range of professional profiles and career experiences at the click of a button. Find a career you’re curious about, view a person’s profile who matches this, and have a look at their experience – even introduce yourself. Most people are happy to share their story and provide tips.

For those keen on a career specifically in tech, there’s never been a better time to learn more about it and develop the skills to equip you for entry. There are amazing bootcamps and networks you can join, particularly those targeting diverse individuals, to help you learn tech specific skills – BlackCodHer; WomenWhoCode, WomenTech; are just a few you could checkout!”
