Diversity and the UK – just how diverse is our business community?
The UK’s business sector consists of a wide range of innovative and creative individuals. But, just how diverse is the UK business community?
Did you know that only 1 in 3 UK entrepreneurs are female (Rose Review of Female Entrepreneurship, HM Treasury, 2019) and less than 1% of businesses are black-owned? (Financial Times, 2020). Are there barriers to starting up, growing and sustaining a business and If so, what are these barriers and how can they be removed?
Join us for this exclusive virtual insight as part of Black History Month as we explore the stories from black-owned businesses, provide top-tips to those who might be thinking of starting a business or social enterprise, share information on the support out there and to inspire our local community. We would encourage you to submit any panel questions on the registration form for this event.
