We ensure talented people of African and Caribbean descent have the opportunity to excel in education and beyond
What is the problem?
In 2018 Black people had the highest unemployment rate out of all the ethnic groups (9%) ( % white counterparts)
Black graduates are almost twice as likely to be unemployed as their white peers a year after leaving college.
British people of African and Caribbean heritage are the most underrepresented in key positions throughout the UK
Only 2% of board members in FTSE 100 companies are Black or minority ethnic (Global future, 2018)
How we address the problem

We bring together universities and businesses looking to diversify their student intake and workforce, with a pool of exceptional talent.
We are transforming lives and changing the negative narrative and perceptions surrounding young black men and women. We are normalising success.
