Minerva is delighted to be involved with London Higher for the 2024 launch event of Global Majority Mentoring Programme this week. The key speakers included Jeremy Crook OBE, CEO of Action for Race Equality and Laura Durrant, CEO of the Black Talent Charter.
ARE champions fairness, challenges race inequality and pioneers innovative solutions to empower young people through education, employment and enterprise, and directly address barriers to racial inequalities.
The Black Talent Charter is an organisation that seeks to build race equity for Black talent into the DNA of British businesses, using collaborative and innovative evidence-based solutions.
London Higher is the membership organisation for universities and higher education colleges across the capital. As the largest representative body of its kind in England, London Higher represents the full diversity of the capital’s higher vibrant education sector, from small, specialist conservatoires and research institutes to large, multi-faculty universities.
Minerva’s core purpose is to reduce inequality in the workplace, change the composition of top teams over time, and to push for better representation of candidates coming from typically under-represented backgrounds.
