About Segun

Segun Fatudimu is the founder of the Sozo Networks and a social entrepreneur with over five years of experience in international development, leading projects related to social sector management, education, health care management, and youth development. He is interested in the intersection of education, health, and social policy, and has a deep understanding of various social challenges affecting developing countries, especially in West Africa.

He is the founder of  the Sozo Networks, where he has created and led formidable networks of young social change leaders in designing solutions to address some of these critical challenges. Growing up poor, his parents’ 14-hour-workdays barely supported their family’s basic welfare needs; thus, their access to education was limited. Fortunately, he had an opportunity to be mentored towards an outstanding educational pursuit that earned him a scholarship at the University of Ibadan, which opened up more career and leadership development opportunities. Realizing how significant his mentors were to change his life trajectory, he feel obligated to provide similar opportunities and training to other disadvantaged youths. He does this by providing educational and professional development opportunities, as well as coaching, and consulting for youth-led and youth-oriented organizations on social impact strategy, strategic philanthropy, fundraising, strategic planning and leadership development.

He is skilled in policy analysis, data analysis, curriculum development, strategic planning, fundraising, grant writing, training facilitation, and program development, management and evaluation. He has spoken at several high-level international social impact conferences and consulted for organizations in West and South Africa and the United States. Segun is an Obama Foundation Scholar, Clinton Foundation Global Initiative Fellow, United States Mandela Washington Fellow, Associate Fellow of the Royal Commonwealth Society, and former President of the YALI Mandela Washington Fellowship Alumni Association of Nigeria. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Dental Surgery from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, Certificate in Civic Leadership and Non-Profit Management from Appalachian State University, Leadership and Management in Health from the University of Washington and candidate for Master of Arts in International Development and Policy at the Harris School of Public Policy, University of Chicago.

At the University of Chicago, he works as a STEM Core Tutor,  providing academic support and coaching undergraduate students pursuing STEM based Careers. He is a member of the Global Affairs and Public Policy Board, where he connects the University of Chicago Students with global opportunities in international development and policy. He organizes seminars and workshops on international development related topics. He also works as research assistance, assisting in the investigation of the use of Randomized Control Trials in Human Services.
