Trinnovo Group launches new community group, Ethnicity Speaks

​London, 10th June 2024. Diversity-focused recruitment and advisory specialist, Trinnovo Group, has announced the launch of their new community group –Ethnicity Speaks.

Ethnicity Speaks is a community built to champion a more inclusive working future for people of all ethnic backgrounds, platform diverse perspectives, uncover career opportunities, and combat ethnic discrimination in the workplace.

The community was born out of a shared vision of a fairer, more accessible working future for all – data suggests that only 1 in 16 senior leaders in the UK are from an ethnic minority background, (Business in the Community) and Black CEOs account for just 2% of the companies in the S&P 500 (Forbes).

Through a curated events program, podcast series, partnerships, employability workshops, and various other thought leadership initiatives, Ethnicity Speaks seeks to mirror the success of Trinnovo Group’s existing communities: Women in DevOps, Pride in Tech, and Ex-Military Careers, extending the firm’s reach across historically marginalised candidate demographics.

The team at Trinnovo Group and Ethnicity Speaks are proud to be partnered with Action for Race Equality, an anti-racism charity that empowers young people who are Black, Asian, and of mixed heritage.

Irfaan Choychoo, recruitment consultant and Ethnicity Network Lead said:

‘Ethnicity Speaks has been a long time coming, and now that it’s finally here – thanks to our incredibly passionate network – I can’t wait for it to grow from strength to strength. This platform presents a real opportunity to support each other and create a sense of belonging in a world that can so often feel isolating. I’m proud to be a part of this community, and I welcome anyone who shares our vision of a fairer working future for all.’
