An important message regarding the EMpower Lists

As a result of the developing Covid-19 outbreak, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the release of our EMpower Ethnic Minority Role Model Lists 2020, which were due to be announced next Thursday 26 March.

This is a turbulent time for everyone and understandably, the focus of the media and news agenda is on Covid-19 and the measures we are all adopting to stay safe. We want to be able to celebrate the successes of every person across the Lists – the power of Role Models come from sharing the news far and wide and showcasing the incredible work every person on the list is doing for inclusion in business. Given the current climate, we believe that right now is not the time to do that.

Rest assured, we will be announcing the full Lists at an appropriate time in the future with the fanfare and attention it fully deserves, and will be sure to celebrate the achievements of our Role Models with even more pride!

Stay safe and well,
From all the team at INvolve
