Black History Month: A look at our Members’ activities

Back in October, we saw the celebration of Black History Month within many of our member organisations and across our wider Inspiring Super-Network.

We want to showcase what our Automotive 30% Club, Patrons, and Silver Members did to mark this important month and showcase role models within the sector. Read more below. 


Enterprise’s Talent Acquisition Team hosted an Inspiring Future Leaders insight session that was open to students at all Universities across the UK and Ireland.

The insight session was led by Enterprise’s Black Leadership Team and covered advice on how to develop your personal brand, a keynote from one of our directors, and a panel where students could ask any questions to our black role models about their career, support, and advice.

Internally, Enterprise’s Race, Religion, and Equity Team hosted a Food Fair on campus, which featured food stalls from the Caribbean, and their podcast club also ran a session around black role models who have been overlooked in history and should be highlighted.
