Live at our Black History Month pop-up event, we spoke to two trailblazers in the Black British community.
Leaders in EDI is a monthly series covering news, views, comments and debates happening across the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion space. It also shines a spotlight on the progress being made and the challenges being faced in EDI across sport.
In this episode, recorded live at our Black History Month event in October (which we called our ‘Black Futures’ pop-up), Leaders’ Cameron Macdonald was joined by Liseli Sitali, Sky Sports’ Head of Marketing (and Founder and Host of the In Her Corner podcast) and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake, Team GB Captain and Sprinter. Throughout the panel, starting from 17:35, the trio discuss the ins and outs of empowerment in the place of work for the Black British community. From the importance of mentors to finding the right way to integrate allyship, the discussion aimed to look at the journeys of the two panellists through their professional lives in order to impart key takeaways for listeners to implement in their own.
The Leaders in EDI podcast is part of the Leaders Meet: Diversity Series, delivered in partnership with Meta, which provides a platform for executives within sport to come together to drive diversity across the industry, accelerate the pace of change and inspire the next generation of executives, through thought-leadership events and digital forums.
