Boards and senior management across all sectors do not reflect our communities
We are a member led community organisation whose mission is to train and mentor Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) people into board and community leadership positions. Our focus within the BME community is people of colour from Black, Asian, Latin American, Arabic, and all mixed-heritage communities to address under representation of our communities at board level.
Our focus is on working with communities in London, however the problem is a national one and crosses sectors, as our communities in London and the UK becomes increasingly diverse. London is the most ethnically diverse city in the UK with 34% of resident population made up of migrants (30% in outer London and 40% in inner London).
We want to be able to offer a grassroots member organisation that provides ongoing learning and peer support, open to everyone in the UK.
- Address underrepresentation at board level through the building of the Black on Board Community
- Building empowered confident communities through networking and peer support.
- Mentoring and networking within Black on Board Community.
Our aim is to deliver our Black on Board Programme and our Black On Board Community across the UK. Will you help us achieve our goal? Please visit our GoFundMe Fundraiser to help us change lives! Please share and Retweet!
