Too often, tragedy precedes change. Over
a century ago, tragedy formed the catalyst for some women in the UK finally
winning the right to vote. This was just the start of the fight for
equality that until then had landed on deaf ears. The awful tragedy of
George Floyd is another global catalyst for change.
The global Black Lives Matter movement and the Industry Campaign #IAM Campaign has held a mirror up that none of us can look away from. We have had to accept the painful truth that this is the real lived experience of our (Black and Ethnic Minority or diverse) friends, neighbours and colleagues and can no longer keep our heads turned away.
Your CEOs and captains of Industry have the power and platform to prioritise the lack of all diversity and create the opportunities for those without privilege. Build a diverse organisation and industry where everyone can thrive regardless of race, gender, sexuality, social class or anything else. Deeds not words are what matters now.
