Nominate your top charity digital BAME leaders 2 - Top Charity Digital BAME Leader

Living in a highly divided society, we want your help in bringing people together!

Census figures show that 14% of the population is non-white. Fewer than 9% of charity sector employees are from BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) backgrounds and the number drops even lower to only 5.3% of people in senior leadership teams.

Civil society should mirror wider society. Charity Digital are addressing this issue and promoting inclusion by seeking out and highlighting role models driving progress and championing the digital innovation that underpins our sector.

We are calling out for nominations of the most inspiring BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) digital leaders in the charity sector. We want to celebrate CEOs, trustees, senior managers and digital talent of all kinds from BAME backgrounds and reward the individuals doing brilliant work leading digital transformation in the charity sector.

The pressing nature of the predicament emerged earlier this year when the #CharitySoWhite hashtag blew up on Twitter in the wake of Citizens Advice Bureau’s racially offensive training material, encouraging individuals to share their shocking experiences. The #CharitySoWhite hashtag lives on and has moved to its own Twitter account and campaigns for change.

We want to challenge and change the status quo. Please join us in tackling prejudice, whether unconscious or more deliberate and help us to advance and amplify the inclusion that our sector needs.

Nominate a friend, a colleague, your manager or even yourself to pioneer progress and promote inclusion in this area. Get in quick as nominations close in a fortnight!
