Eneni Bambara-Abban

Eneni Bambara-Abban is a Robotics Engineer, STEM Communicator, Tech Speaker and Content Creator, the Founder of Anime & Chill, an International Anime and Gaming Community as well as a Member of the BCS, Chartered Institute for IT.

She currently works as a Product Owner at Sokoshopper, an International Pan-African E-commerce Start-up, and is responsible for maximising the value of the platform, prioritising the team backlog and managing an agile workplace which centres on the core values of Scrum, such as full transparency and collaboration.

Whilst at Sokoshopper, Eneni also supports the business as a technical consultant applying her robotics and automation knowledge to creative innovative strategies to differentiate Sokoshopper from its competition.

An advocate for diversity and inclusion, Eneni has a strong passion to de-mystify and eradicate the negative stereotypes and limiting societal expectations placed on women worldwide. After being discouraged from studying robotics engineering for many years and later graduating as the only black woman on her course, she knew that she wanted to do something to increase diversity within STEM especially in the fields which will power and govern our future – Data, AI and Robotics. For the last few years, she has self-funded and organized several coding, robotics and wellbeing workshops in England and across Africa, as well as virtually during the pandemic to encourage, educate and support young people in pursuing and retaining careers in engineering and technology.
