Racial Equity: the condition where one's origin, racial or ethnic identity has no influence on how one fares in society. (1)
WHO WE ARE.
Jochebed's experiences growing up in the Niger Republic, Canada, and South Carolina as the daughter of Nigerian missionaries, inspired a lifelong passion for pursuing social equity through finance. Upon receiving the Tyng Scholarship to attend Williams College, she used degrees in Economics and African American History to home in on the origins and drivers of socioeconomic disparity. After graduation, Jochebed moved to San Francisco to join Hall Capital Partners' Portfolio Management Group, before becoming an Investment Analyst at Tiedemann Advisors. There she helped lead Impact Investing and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion strategy while conducting due diligence on investment vehicles in all asset classes.
While consulting with the newly launched Registered Investment Advisor GRID 202 Partners to help the firm develop a proprietary theory of change for racial equity investing, Jochebed saw an opportunity to leverage this expertise more broadly and founded J Aduke Consulting spring of 2019. She is a member of the Intentional Endowments Network Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Working Group, and a Founding Member of the Net Impact Black Professional Chapter. Jochebed volunteers on the Alumni Board of QuestBridge, an education non-profit connecting low-income students with opportunities at elite colleges and beyond.
After work, Jochebed loves to garden on her balcony, sing and cook. You will most likely find her watching Stargate-SG1, the original Charlie's Angels, or Murder, She Wrote in her down time. Unless Venture Bros is on.
After an adoption gone bad and nearly 6 more months spent with the Humane Society of York County, Hope will be joining the team soon. She will be responsible for the indispensable task of keeping our founder sane.
