Q+A with the North Highland London BAME Community

open forrest with trees and blue question marks

Last month, North Highland’s Black African and Minority Ethnic (BAME) network in the London office hosted a discussion event titled ‘Let’s Talk About Racism’. The event highlighted the importance of talking about racism in the workplace, manifestations of racism, overcoming individual biases, how individuals can get to enact change and more. Following the event, we connected with the BAME leaders for more details about the group, ways to overcome racism at work, and upcoming events for North Highlanders.

Tell us about the London BAME community.

The London BAME community came as a result from conversations from North Highland’s Black Employee Network (BEN) in the US. While the North Highland London office is in the heart of the city, we realized that the office did not reflect the diversity of the city we live and work in. We wanted to create a community for ethnic minorities to provide support, check in with people and help those individuals starting with North Highland, provide encouragement and more. Last year, we made the decision to change the name to BAME to align with the names of similar ethnic minority groups within other organisations in the UK. Our hope for the BAME community is to create awareness for other colleagues who are interested and want to know more a create a space for people to ask the uncomfortable questions.
