Beatrice Butsana-Sita

Beatrice has joined a company where the agenda on people and diversity is still fairly limited, thus she has recently encouraged the board to participate in official surveys on diversity in FTSE 100 companies and to put an action plan together to bring in more people from minorities in senior leadership roles. Wherever she can, she uses her own network to provide the candidates to the company and is looking for women in her succession plan. Externally, Beatrice has been invited by CMI to join a new advisory board to tackle the continued under-representation of people from BAME backgrounds in management and leadership roles. The advisory board is drawn from across business, academia, and diversity experts, as well senior leaders from a BAME background.
