In celebration of Black History month in October, I have reached out to some people within my network; for them to share their career journey and challenges they have faced along the way. Stay tuned because the stories will inspire you, no matter which stage you are at in your career.
Why is Black History Month necessary?
People from African and Caribbean backgrounds form a key part of British history, often their contributions can be watered down or overlooked. Often most schools teach history focusing on achievements of white figures and not placing as much emphasis on black figures. However, Black History Month provides everyone with the opportunity to share and celebrate the impact of black heritage to our everyday life.
