Anglia Ruskin PhD student makes list of the top 30 ethnic minority championsAn Anglia Ruskin University student has been tipped for the top, being named as one of the top 30 ethnic minority future leaders in the UK, Ireland, United States and Canada.
During his time at global investment bank UBS, Emeka personally captured the data for BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) employees and ensured they are assigned to mentors following induction. He also ensured a thorough understanding of the review and promotion process, and encouraged BAME employees to join a network by inviting them to diversity events that are relevant to them.
“I am extremely humbled and very thankful to be recognised among a group of stand-out and enthusiastic BAME professionals that are impacting not just the workplace, but the communities we live in.
“Beyond any personal achievement I have received, I feel making the Top 30 Future Leader list is a true testament to the hard work and success to date that we as BAME professionals have achieved together as a team—that’s what makes it most significant and meaningful to me.”
