Our Collaboration – Black Leadership Group & Morgan Hunt
The Black Leadership Group and Morgan Hunt have collaborated on the anti-racist agenda since the founding of the Black Leadership Group in 2020.
One of the first actions of the Black Leadership Group post founding was to circulate an ‘Open Letter’ to the then UK Prime Minister and Education Secretary addressing systemic racism in further education in August 2020 - Morgan Hunt was an original signatory to that open letter. Further Education stakeholders were invited to sign the open letter in order to acknowledge the race inequality challenges prevalent in the post-16 education and skills sector, and to join with Black Leadership Group to “collectively address the barriers that our students, staff and communities face.”
Morgan Hunt was the first private sector organisation to become an affiliate member of the Black Leadership Group – underlining our joint commitment to eradicate racism. As part of this affiliation membership, Morgan Hunt have worked through the Black Leadership Group 10 Point Plan Diagnostic Toolkit which involved undertaking a comprehensive audit of our antiracist practice across the business, undergoing associated training and the range of benefits to assist affiliate organisations in their anti-racist journey.
We also worked in partnership with key Further Education sector leadership search and recruitment providers on the development and implementation of an anti-racist recruitment protocol to drive new behaviours and practices in senior leadership and governance recruitment within the sector.
We have collaborated on multiple events and webinars over the past few years, such as our “Developing an Inclusive Hiring Strategy” webinar, and are committed to demonstrating our public commitment to the vision of an Anti-racist society and support the work of the Black Leadership Group.
The development of the black leadership job board is an extension of this ongoing collaboration and the obvious next step in our aim is to ensure that more ethnically diverse individuals are aware of leadership opportunities available to them and to assist employers in promoting their opportunities to talented black professionals.
