About this Event

We believe that addressing Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) inequality and employment barriers should be everybody’s business and priority. Our series of ‘Breaking Barriers: Boosting your Business’ events aim to investigate these and other employment barriers facing the BAME community. By breaking these barriers, businesses can receive a boost and flourish to take advantage of new opportunities. Come and find out how businesses can be at the forefront in bringing about positive change for employment diversity. Hear powerful personal stories from our inspiring panel members and have the chance to learn and share best practice with other businesses.
