A word from Career Masterclass
STRETCH Conference /The Career Masterclass Journey
Career Masterclass has a clear objective: to make career advancement accessible to individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds and minority groups across the globe.
That’s why it’s crucial for us to identify the current realities, including the professionals in this category who are gradually democratising the workplace for their peers.
Listen as Bukola Adisa, Founder of Career Masterclass, shares how we can and should celebrate industry trailblazers paving the way for ethnically diverse professionals in their respective fields.

Message from keynote speaker
Fireside chat with Senior Executive
We’ve all heard of the proverbial glass ceiling keeping women from moving past a particular level of career growth. But over the years, more and more women have consistently proven that limitation is primarily a matter of one’s willingness to kick against the status quo and keep creating space for themselves and others like them at the table.
This session is not to be missed. Hear from inspirational and successful women leaders from within and outside the black community on their secrets of success.
