The National Leadership Association for Young Black Men and Women

Every person should be able to fulfil their potential at work, regardless of their background, identity or circumstance. But we know that isn’t the case currently. Black and minority ethnic (BME) individuals in the UK are both less likely to get in and get on in the workplace compared with their white counterparts. One in eight of the working-age population is from a BME background, yet they occupy only one in sixteen of top management positions. You just have to look at the make-up of UK boards to know there’s a significant problem with racial inequality”.
