Marilyn Okoro (Lyttelton 02)

“I thought it would be nice to share that since retiring from Athletics I have successfully transitioned into my next career in HR. I am a TA Lead for Equinix, the worlds data infrastructure company, where I manage the internship and early careers programs for EMEA, as well as the Athlete Career Transition pathway supporting sports people into work.

Since retiring from sport, I have also been made a Director on UKA Board and most recently England Athletics Board. I still do a lot of speaking and advocacy work on mental health, safeguarding and welfare and diversity, equity and inclusion. I live in London and always love to connect with Old Stoics wherever I go! I hope to see as many as possible at the Centenary Ball this year!”
