Meet Kachi - Founder, The UpWomen
Hi, I’m Kachi, and a firm believer in the power of network, support and collaboration!
When I first moved from Nigeria to UK as a young adult to pursue a masters degree at Cambridge, I had to navigate settling into a continent and building the foundations for a successful legal career all on my own. While I was making moves in life and in my job as a corporate lawyer in London, I missed having a strong support system of women I could lean on and learn from.
That was the beginning of this community which started from my personal blog evolved to IRL events and has grown into a global circle of passionate, high-flying and incredible women. As a lawyer, entrepreneur, wife and mum of two boys with a passion for life and varied interests, I have found this supportive network indispensable.
The UpWomen (launched in November 2020) is here to provide hands-on resources, tools, opportunities and supportive conversation spaces for women who want to take action on their greatest ambitions, find balance on their own terms, move up professionally, expand their network and live the high-impact life they’ve always dreamed of.
Best of all, we don’t have to do it all alone.
your personal + professional community
