In October 2017, the Los Angeles Times
published an open letter—led by Adama Iwu and signed by over 140 women—on the pervasive culture of sexual harassment, discrimination, and assault in politics. That letter struck a chord with women in politics and other industries. This resulted in the creation of the We Said Enough Foundation, whose mission is to eliminate bullying, harassment, and assault in the workplace. Iwu now serves as the president of the board. In December 2017, Time Magazine
recognized Iwu as a “Silence Breaker” and featured her on the cover of their “People of the Year” edition. In her role at Visa, Iwu advances Visa’s technology and business policy issues at the state level.
