Photography and Videography

While attending an MSDUK event you may be filmed, photographed or recorded. We, including our agents, assignees, employees, affiliated organizations, and partners worldwide, may use these films, images, or recordings for marketing purposes.


On their way to success, ethnic minority businesses (EMBs) in the UK face a systemic lack of representation in the supply chain which limits their access to markets and investment capital, affects growth and sales. MSDUK’s goal is to break down these barriers to entry and create an inclusive ecosystem of entrepreneurship that leads to opportunities for EMBs that are not only equal, but equitable.

We passionately believe that only through a diverse supply chain can industry truly meet the demands of the growing multicultural population in the UK, whilst also improving business performance, increasing innovation and driving growth.
