Sally in HR with Kelechi Okafor

On this week’s episode of Secure The Seat, I interview Kelechi Okafor  aka Kelechnekoff . She is an actor, director and dance innovator who facilitates self-actualization through dance. Kelechi opened Kelechnekoff Fitness Studio in 2016 and has since been featured (twice!) as one of the top ten fitness classes to attend by Timeout London. Kelechi has built her platform on talking honestly about fitness and about societal structures. Kelechi’s quick wit and thoughtful Instagram stories have provided a great space for her weekly podcast, Say Your Mind, to thrive. Kelechi created the character #SallyInHR as a way to address the micro and macro aggressions faced by marginalized communities in the workplace. We even chat with Sally in this episode. Connect with Kelechi on Twitter.
