Nigerian-born Adanwimo Okafor Named General Counsel of American Board Of Surgery
Sharing the good news on her LinkedIn page, Okafor said, “I’m the first person of color and first black woman to hold this position in the organization’s 80 plus year history!
The American Board of Surgery is the national certifying body for general surgeons and related specialists in the US. In addition to being the General Counsel, Okafor also serves as the inaugural chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer in the organisation.
This is a great feat worthy of emulation from a Nigerian.
When you put so much work in your discipline, you will surely go places.
Remember she has been working and grinding all these years and it was as if no one knew her.
Never give up on your dreams.
