Seyi Newell is the effervescent and dynamic founder of Tribe, an organisation dedicated to helping Black women explore, excel and thrive in everything they put their minds to. She founded Tribe because she was angry at the very visible lack of inclusion in the spaces she was invited to and after her mentor told her she should do something about it.
Seyi is a delight. We discuss imposter syndrome, defining success for ourselves and understanding the role we each play in what she calls the ecosystem of change. We also discuss how she process the pain she encounters through her work, her thoughts on self-love as a combatant for shame and how she helps Black women take up the space they deserve to occupy in this world.
