One in eight of the working age population are from a Black & Minority Ethnic background, yet only one in ten are in the workplace and only one in sixteen top
management positions are held by an ethnic minority person+. Now more than ever, given the events that are unfolding around the world concerning the Black community, we feel it is necessary to celebrate what Black professionals are capable of with right support and opportunities.
We founded Excellerate Black Futures in order to use our joint expertise spanning decades in HR and professional backgrounds within the Talent Acquisition (including Early Careers), Learning & Development and Leadership space, to enhance the narrative around Black talent.
We are passionate about seeing young talent succeed. We aim to support and elevate young Black students, graduates and professionals early in their careers. Our objective is to educate them through our 6 week group mentoring programme and monthly scale up events, equipping them with the tools that will help them excel as professionals and accelerate their careers.
Let’s build something together
We are always looking for great speakers, facilitators, funding opportunities and potential mentors to help further the mission to help black talent excel. If you are able to help, we would love to hear from you.
