In the last episode of this series we discussed how the murder of George Floyd in May of 2020, and the subsequent protests, brought about a call for change around the world. Individuals, businesses, industries and institutions were forced to acknowledge the existence of inequality, discrimination, and lack of representation for ethnic minorities not just within society, but within the professional work space as well. The UK finance sector came under great scrutiny as data showed how ethnic minorities were vastly underrepresented within the sector, and nearly two thirds of UK finance workers from ethnic minority backgrounds experienced discrimination within the workplace. But 2 years later, how much progress have we made? In this three-part special series, Real Vision’s Roger Hirst is joined by Michael Barrington Hibbert, on the two year anniversary of George Floyd’s murder, to discuss why the UK finance industry came under such scrutiny, what progress has been made, and the next steps.
