Dynamic and effective leadership is key to create real, sustainable change for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people in UK organisations. Companies’ tone, culture and priorities are set from the top, so it’s essential for senior business leaders to engage in developing a diverse and inclusive workforce. This year’s winners have worked incredibly hard to provide that leadership, and we should celebrate their efforts and achievements in promoting diverse talent across their companies
