Congratulations to IP Clinic alum Nabila Aguele!
INSEAD, the Business School for the World, has announced the appointment of Nabila (Isa-Odidi) Aguele MBA’14J to its Board of Directors, effective June 2021. Nabila is an alum of the IP Clinic and also served as a Practitioner in Residence in the clinic after several years practicing patent law at Morrison and Foerster and Sonnenschein Nath and Rosenthal LLP (now Dentons.)
Nabila Aguele is of Nigerian origin and has called several countries home, including England, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the US, and Canada. After over a decade in the United States, her passion for Africa and desire to help drive sustainable impact and development on the Continent led her to move back to Nigeria as a Policy Advisor to the Federal Government in 2016.
Currently, Aguele is a Special Adviser to Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, Budget, and National Planning. She provides policy and strategy advice on international development cooperation, and on performance monitoring and evaluation for data-driven policy formulation and implementation. A strong advocate for women’s rights, Nabila is also supporting interventions at the intersection of gender and public financial management.
Nabila continues to be a strong supporter of the clinic and law school and a champion for balanced IP policies. She is also an accomplished artist and lives in Abuja with her husband and three children.
