Why are Black women still overlooked and left behind in career progression?

Wednesday 19th October, 12pm-1pm (BST)

Across the world, companies are working to increase the number of women in their leadership teams with almost 40% of UK FTSE 100 board positions held by women, as of 2022 (gov.uk).
However, Black women continue to be underrepresented despite the push for gender equality. A survey conducted by BWIL (Black Women in Leadership) Network found, 44% (4/10) of Black women do not believe they are offered the same career advancement opportunities as their non-Black female colleagues and 84% of Black women in senior management positions reported experiencing racial bias at work.

So why are Black women still overlooked and left behind?
