Black Lives Matter & Business: Where to start
Since the tragic demise of George Floyd, executive representatives across the corporate world have pledged to take action against systemic racism. However, in 2018, only one in three employees reported that there was at least one senior leader in the organisation who actively promotes equality and diversity. What does leadership look like now that the Black Lives Matter movement has finally come to the forefront of all of our conversations?
This was the second webinar in UN Global Compact Network UK's Black Lives Matter & Business series, taking place on 30 September 2020. It focused on practical actions the business community can and should take to start supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and start being actively anti-racist.
