Ngozie founded Slaughter and May’s BME network in 2010, which is now one of the firm’s most active and visible diversity networks. As part of her involvement in the network Ngozie organised a number of seminars which brought together BME professionals throughout the City. Ngozie has also worked closely with partners in Slaughter and May’s Africa practice to attract more BME applicants through launching the Slaughter and May Africa Essay Prize and speaking at the firm’s first recruitment event focussing on Slaughter and May’s work in Africa. Ngozie has developed a number initiatives to support independent African law firms including an annual secondment programme which invites lawyers from Africa to spend three weeks in the firm’s London office. This year’s secondment programme hosted over 20 lawyers from across 13 African countries.
