We ensure talented men of African and Caribbean descent have the opportunity to excel in education and beyond
What is the problem?
In 2016 the unemployment rate for black male graduates aged 16-24 in London was 18%, in comparison to 10% for their white counterparts (Office for National Statistics, 2016)
Black male graduates earn £7,000 less per year than their white counterparts (Guardian, 2018)
Only 2% of board members in FTSE 100 companies are Black or minority ethnic (Global future, 2018)
How we address the problem
