Cafecito con HACE: Yemi Akisanya

This week's Cafecito con HACE featured a special guest named Yemi Akisanya who is the Global Head of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Groupon. Born as a first-generation American to Nigerian immigrants, Yemi proudly shared the noble lineage of his grandfather, a traditional King, and gave an account of his multicultural upbringing that shaped his passion for being an inclusive leader, helping to develop career opportunities for the underprivileged, and creating social impact.  

Yemi will be featured as one of three key speakers at HACE’s Bi-Annual Chief Diversity Officer Roundtable next week, where he will discuss the importance of embracing authentic leadership in the workplace. To find out more about Yemi’s work, connect with him on Linkedin.
