Clare Muscutt talk with Debbie Akwara about her journey to becoming a CX Queen, in West Africa.
‘There are no ‘women of colour’ in Africa’
This week’s Women in CX Podcast guest, The CX Queen of Nigeria, Debbie Akwara came on the show to share her career story and share the moments that shaped her into the formidable woman she is becoming.
Including her shocking recent and first ever experience of being referred to as a ‘woman of colour’ when she dared to challenge the status quo of how the CX community functions in the West.
Whilst being well known across her home continent for years, in the last 12 months she broke through to become globally recognised as a thought leader. And earned her place at the table.
Yet as a woman from Africa, she was made to feel her voice was deemed as less valuable.
More women all over the world are rising up to take their rightful place on global stages, being better enabled by the digital communications and collaboration revolution.
I’m proud the women in CX community is here to amplify the voices of women who are ready to be heard. And those who aren’t ready for us, best get set. As women like Debbie, will not be ignored.
