Home / News and Insights / Insights / The 10,000 Black Interns programme: Meet Adaeze

As part of the 10,000 Black Interns programme, Adaeze reflects on her time at BDB Pitmans.

Adaeze Ezeh

What about BDB Pitmans appealed to you before you accepted your internship?

I was interested in working in a law firm of BDB Pitmans’ size because I felt I would receive better training compared to a bigger sized firm where I may not see processes from end-to-end. Additionally, the firm came across as a firm that understood the importance of diversity and was willing to take necessary steps to address the gap.

What did you enjoy most about your internship with BDB Pitmans?

I really enjoyed the team I worked with (HR). From day one, they were approachable and made me feel like a member of the team. I was given tasks that built and challenged me but I felt supported every step of the way. I will also miss playing table tennis at lunch time with other employees – especially Junior.

If you were to describe our company culture in three words, what would they be?

If I were to describe the company culture in three words, they would be, ‘inclusive’, ‘supportive’ and ‘open’.

What project that are you working on in your present role that you’ve enjoyed the most?

I am currently working on Mental Health First Aider (MHFA) awareness. I have enjoyed researching the role of an MHFA and avenues where they could be of service to their colleagues. I am working with a HR Advisor and the Marketing team to put together visual aids that would help employees know what this service entails and how to access it. BDB Pitmans demonstrates its commitment to the wellbeing of employees by offering this additional support. This should go live within the next month and I am glad to have been a part of it, as mental health awareness is dear to my heart.
