"I'm James Adeleke and my area of expertise is social mobility and on removing the different social mobility factors that impact under represented groups at different stages of their careers. I founded Generation Success which now has a network of more than 10,000 young people and partnered with more than 70 employers.
My vision is to empower the young generation to excel and create a network that advances social mobility by empowering people of diversity to reach their career aspirations. I aim to achieve these goals by making it easier for businesses and people of diversity to connect, thus creating equal access to more opportunities and building a fairer world for everyone.
I am passionate about creating a world where we all have equal access and equal opportunities to achieve our career aspirations, improve wellbeing for people from disadvantaged backgrounds and to build a country that is fair for all.
I wanted to be part of the change rather than the noise. As a young man with dyslexia and dyspraxia from a single-parent household from South London, I have spent the last 10 years navigating the social enterprise space, to become a respected figure in social mobility and employability.
The legacy that I’m building is not just impacting one’s life but it's having a butterfly effect on those who they know today and will meet tomorrow. I can't wait to see where the journey will take them to and celebrate their success every step of the way."
