Dr Eseonu is a Principal Researcher at the Young Foundation responsible for managing a portfolio of multi-sector research and evaluation projects, working with a range of clients including local and national government, national funding bodies, social enterprises and charities. Dr Eseonu’s academic and professional background gives her an interdisciplinary lens in the way she approaches research projects.

Before joining the Young Foundation, Dr Eseonu worked in various organisations in the private and not-for-profit sectors leading Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in workplaces. She recently completed her PhD in Politics at the University of Manchester where she also worked as a Teaching Associate. Her doctoral research project used co-creation with racially minoritised young people and an employment support service of a local council in Greater Manchester to suggest what equitable public services delivery looks like. She has written in several peer-reviewed publications, has presented her work to various audiences, and is an expert in qualitative methods, with a particular emphasis on participatory methods and co-creation. She is passionate about the involvement of minoritised communities in research as a means to achieving equitable futures.
