Recent dialogs amongst some of the world’s leaders suggest that businesses that invest in Women of Colour gain a more diverse perspective and win more business. In spite of this, representation in leadership is still very low. “Business in the Community” (BITC), a group founded by the Prince of Wales to support responsible business, found that Black people held just 1.5% of the 3.7m leadership positions across the UK’s public and private sectors in 2019, compared with 1.4% in 2014. This research suggests that businesses still have a lot to do to support and encourage them in their leadership pursuits.
