OUR CHALLENGE

The treatment of people of colour has been brought into sharp focus by the murder of George Floyd and the resulting international protests against racism. The situation has laid bare the discrimination, economic and social injustices that people of colour face every day. Harsh realities, affecting every aspect of life.

 

Adversely impacted by both sexism and racism, the situation for women of colour is particularly challenging – both within the workplace and in wider society.

We want to see systemic, long-lasting change to the lives of women of colour – in the working world and beyond. And we believe our network will be a driving force for this change

OUR MISSION

To support, connect and sponsor women of colour, championing them to lead fulfilling lives and careers.

OUR VALUES

We’re inclusive, welcoming anyone who identifies as a woman of colour, and we’re respectful – embracing the strength that difference brings. We’re open; we listen deeply and empathetically, and we celebrate individual stories, building connections so these stories can thrive. We’re creative and collaborative, fostering partnerships and cooperation.

OUR VISION

It was so easy speaking to my mentor about my experiences, ambitions, insecurities, especially as a woman of colour because I always felt there was an unspoken understanding between us.

Mentee, Queen Mary University 

To live in a world where everyone has access to equal and equitable opportunities, regardless of gender and skin colour.
