A cleaner on the underground, who campaigned for her colleagues to be paid the London Living Wage, is among those who have been been honoured at the Migrant and Refugee Woman of the Year Awards.
Clara Osagiede moved to the capital from Nigeria, where she had been involved in student politics.
One of her colleagues said: “Clara is a passionate fighter for justice at every level. Her experiences of life and migration are a source of strength to her. She will still be fighting when the rest of us are put out to grass.”
