Ron launched the ethnic minority network in 2017, which has already delivered on its objective of making Worldpay a more welcoming and inclusive place. He has directly participated in reverse mentoring opportunities with individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds, and sponsors a wide variety of inclusivity events held by Worldpay, including local town halls, internal colleague-led gatherings and induction days welcoming new starters. Externally, Ron regularly speaks at events aimed at encouraging diversity and inclusivity in the workplace, including the All Party Parliamentary Group looking at cross-faith diversity. For three consecutive years, he has spoken at the House of Lords, on the important role the business community has in driving the ethnic minority agenda in the UK workplace.
