EY joins Black British Network

EY has announced its support of the Black British Network.  Founded by Cephas Williams, the Black British Network works closely with UK business to help bring lasting systemic change for the Black community. As a founding member, EY will join and support the Black British Network in a number of round-table conversations this year. These events will focus on how companies can support their people and create a culture where Black people can progress and develop their careers. It will be a forum for companies to compare their experiences, share insights into what has worked and what hasn’t, and to walk away with tangible actions to help change collective thinking, behaviour, processes, and understanding of the issues faced by the Black community.

The creation of the British Black Network follows Cephas Williams’ letter to his son Zion. In the open letter, he writes to his new born son after the killing of George Floyd in the US and how he envisions a better future for him and the Black community. Hywel Ball, has signed the letter on behalf of EY to show the firm’s support and commitment to advancing Black and racial equality, joining a number of other UK and global companies.
