Dr. Stephen Otim
Dr. Stephen Otim is a co-founder of the African Cultural Promotion Center.
Born and raised in Uganda, he has lived more than half of his life in both the United Kingdom and The Netherlands where he currently resides and works. Husband to Mollynn and a father of 2 children who live and study in an international environment, he is keenly aware of the identity crises young children are likely to suffer if they are not firmly rooted and have a strong sense of belonging.
Stephen is passionate about diversity and inclusiveness (D&I) in all its forms and in all places of human interaction. While working at a multinational company in the Netherlands, Stephen founded an African Network to promote the active inclusion of staff from African origin into the labour force by improving personal and talent development.
He is also a technology enthusiast and believes the digital divide disproportionately affects minority groups. This can be a limiting factor when African businesses are trying to compete in a global fast paced world that uses technology to get every competitive advantage.
Stephen is looking forward to mentoring both young students and coaching adults alike but also helping any entrepreneurs and businesses to embrace modern technology to get ahead.
