Black and Minority Ethnic staff are less likely to progress in the workplace to senior positions or to receive equal pay and pay parity than other staff. Utilising a ‘positive action’ approach, through BME talent retention and development, is one proven way of making staff feel valued, equipped and better able to make a positive contribution.

The aim of the course is to help individuals realise and unlock their potential to lead and achieve in an increasingly competitive environment. It also helps organisations to take effective steps to engage and empower staff. Providing staff with skills and tools to make a difference alongside effectively managing and responding to change. Most importantly it will enable organisations to utilise the untapped talent of black and ethnic minority staff and create a fair and equitable high-performance culture.


‘The potential benefit to the UK economy from full representation of BME individuals across the labour market through improved participation and progression is estimated to be £24 billion per annum, which represents 1.3% of GDP100’ – McGregor-Smith Review 2017
