Delivering a levelled up North
We are working together, across all sectors.
We see business a force for good, which has the power to generate wealth and change the black narrative across the North of England – now and forever.
The COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matters movement shone a light on deep seated inequalities that can no longer be ignored. Society is in transition and leaders from across all sectors have declared their ambition for a system reboot–to level up the North, and to create opportunity for everyone.
What do the stats tell us?
The potential benefit of diversity to the UK economy is £24 Billion.
– Only 1.5% of senior roles are held by black people
– The number of black leaders in FTSE 100 companies is zero.
– 45% of Black people have experienced racism at work in the UK
And help make the North of England the best place in the UK for black people to work, for black-owned businesses to thrive, and for businesses, charities and the public sector to drive meaningful change on race.
