LBS names Juliet Ehimuan one of 30 global change makers
The London Business School (LBS) has named Google Business Director for West Africa, Juliet Ehimuan, as one of 30 young persons involved in changing the world.
A statement issued by Rachel Onamusi yesterday noted that Ehimuan is being recognised for being at the forefront of the drive to empower people in using technology to transform their lives.
“Her relentless effort to raise human dignity through technology and thought leadership has earned her recognition as one of Forbes’ 20 Youngest Power Women in Africa.
“She is in excellent company; the prestigious list includes Ismail Ahmed, WorldRemit founder and Satya Nadella, Microsoft Chief Executive Officer. It is clear that the tech world in particular is dynamic with a lot of impactful players.
“To have such influence in perhaps the most revolutionary phase since the industrial age is a testament to Ehimuan’s tenacity, commitment to transforming lives and a childhood grounded in the unwavering belief that one can do–and become–anything one wants to with the right attitude and sheer willpower,” the statement reads.
It explained that Ehimuan was raised, as one of five girls and two boys by a mother who firmly believed in excellence and high performance and that Juliet was not limited by gender and went on to blaze a trail in her academic path.
She holds an Executive MBA from the LBS, a Postgraduate degree in Computer Science from the University of Cambridge and a First Class Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife.
