Chinwe Ohanele Episode 45

December 11, 2020

Welcome Chinwe (Ohana -lay) Ohanele!  She is an attorney and entrepreneur who has navigated the politics of identity, culture, and access much of her life. She runs a law firm that caters to BIPOC creatives, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. 

Chinwe has worked extensively on frameworks necessary to support Pan-African media initiatives and creative entrepreneurship. She oversaw the restructuring, rebranding, and repositioning of an online digital magazine examining the varied experiences of African diaspora. Additionally, Chinwe has consulted with various Nigerian entertainment and media stakeholders around best practices and policies necessary for de-risking investments in an uncertain market. Chinwe is now using her professional skills as a lawyer and her passion for content to share how intellectual property can empower under-represented voices, and address wealth disparities for invisible communities.

Her goal is to demystify the legalese behind intellectual property for minority communities so that we can monetize and maintain the value of our ideas and our stories.

Listen in as she tells us how she committed her life to change…..
