Slaughter and May is pleased to announce partners Sarah Lee and Nilufer von Bismarck have been named again in this year’s EMpower 100 Ethnic Minority Leaders List, which celebrates the work of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) business leaders. Alongside the EMpower 100 Ethnic Minority Leaders List we are also delighted to announce that Head of International Relations, Ngozie Azu has been named in this year’s EMpower 30 Ethnic Minority Future Leaders List, a list which recognises and celebrates up and coming BAME leaders.

EMpower, now in its second year, is a unique initiative that unites business leaders from across all BAME communities, showcasing the Top 100 BAME executives in the UK. The lists shine a light on business leaders who are making great strides in driving the BAME agenda forward.

Suki Sandhu, Founder & CEO EMpower and OUTstanding, “There is a diversity deficit at the very top of organisations in both the UK and the US. We whole-heartedly believe that making diverse role models visible and celebrating them is the most powerful way to address this - demonstrating to the leaders of tomorrow exactly what is possible for minority ethnic groups. We’re extremely proud to be taking this important initiative into its second year. The EMpower message is clear: your ethnicity or background should not and will not be a barrier to your professional success.”
