YOMI ADEGOKE & ELIZABETH UVIEBINENÉ
Authors of Slay In Your Lane: The Black Girl
Bible (out 12 July, Harper Collins), Elizabeth and Yomi’s friendship goes back to university. Yomi is now a journalist and Elizabeth a brand marketer, but their true forte is inspiring black women to realise their potential. ‘After facing challenges in my first job, I read books on how to get ahead at work as a woman, and spotted that black British women weren’t being widely represented – so we decided to do something about it,’ says Elizabeth. Their summer cocktail order? Yomi will take a passionfruit mojito and Elizabeth will have a piña colada with an extra shot of rum, please.
