Maples Group welcomes new global DEI lead

Blessing Buraimoh

The Maples Group has appointed Blessing Buraimoh as its first-ever global diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) lead.

Ms Buraimoh, who is based in London, will work with the group’s leadership teams and local DEI committees — including in Ireland — to advise, evolve and lead the implementation of the group’s global DEI strategy.

She brings over 11 years’ experience in DEI and sustainable social impact and has consulted across various sectors and geographies.

Jonathan Green, global managing partner of Maples and Calder, the Maples Group’s law firm, said: “We are delighted to welcome Blessing to the Maples Group.

“We have always had an inclusive culture, however, there can be no room for complacency and we are continuously reviewing how we can improve in this regard. As part of our commitment to DEI, we very much look forward to Blessing’s support and experienced leadership in this area.”

Ms Buraimoh added: “I am thrilled to join the Maples Group as the global DEI lead. The Maples Group has grown rapidly over the past few years and now is an opportune time to review, evaluate and evolve its approach DEI in a way that will not only enhance growth but also create a workplace culture that is fit for the future.

“I believe that businesses and wider society both win when we create sustainable campaigns to deliver work environments where everyone, regardless of their backgrounds, can feel welcome, included and can achieve their potential.”
