How can I get involved with Black History Month?

Every October, we take time to recognise and celebrate the incredible contributions black people have made to our society. This Black History Month, the theme is ‘Saluting Our Sisters’ – honouring the achievements of black women throughout history, as well as the unsung heroes of our modern world. 

In this blog, we look at 3 meaningful ways to engage with Black History Month 2023. 

1.Take part in the 5 Day Challenge 

Encourage your colleagues to take part in the 5 Day Challenge designed to help promote better awareness around race equality. Each activity only takes five minutes, meaning you and your team can easily fit it into the working day! Download the 2023 5 Day Challenge Project Manager Guide to get started. 

  1. Listen to a podcast

Another easy way to educate yourself this Black History Month is to listen to podcasts by black creatives and storytellers. Whether you’re off on a run or commuting to work – this a great opportunity to add a few newbies to your listening library!

Here are a few recommendations: 

  1. Improve diversity in the workplace 

A bigger, more important step to improving diversity and inclusion is to, well, improve diversity and inclusion! Perhaps your company has nailed the recruitment process and is extremely mindful when it comes to equal representation and opportunities. On the other hand, it’s OK to admit that ‘hey, we could be doing more’ – positive change can only happen after you identify the problem, after all. 

Here at Imperium Resourcing, we champion diversity, equality and inclusion and are constantly striving to drive positive change across the interim sector. If you want to talk to one of our consultants, get in touch on 0203 929 4000 today.
