The Activism Blog: After 10 years, Paradigm Initiative expands its board with two women 

We know ‘Gbenga Sesan has signalled he will be leaving the leadership of Paradigm Initiative Nigeria after 10 years, and this is the tenth year, so perhaps this is a move in that direction.

Anyway, the continental leader in digital rights and inclusion, as far as we know, has added two accomplished women to its board of advisors – Drs Jummai Zainab Umar-Ajijola and Aida Opoku-Mensah.

Umar-Ajijola – who we always thought was already on the board – led on corporate social responsibility for Microsoft Nigeria years ago and is now chief executive of The Business People (tbp) Limited and sits on the board of ActionAid, and Opoku-Mensah works with the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia as Special Advisor to the ECA Executive Secretary on Special Initiatives & SDGs/Agenda 2030.

 They are the only additions to the boats since we started paying attention a half-year ago, and join its board of five led by Professor Pat Utomi as chair and ‘Sesan as founder and executive director.
