Black Professionals Scotland – we can’t change the world, but let’s make a dentClear talking from Anderson Strathern discussing what matters to you and your business
10/24/22 • 31 min
We move – no matter what happens, we go forward. We remain resilient. And we stay positive.
The future can only be better. We can’t change the world but let’s make a dent.
This is the philosophy of Enoch Adeyemi, founder of Black Professionals Scotland (BPS). In our latest podcast, he joins employment law expert, Musab Hemsi, to discuss his story and what led him to starting the organisation, which is now almost 2000-strong.
When Enoch secured his first professional role in Scotland, he knew his financial future would be relatively comfortable. He then looked around him and realised that his peers weren’t all in the same boat. So, he decided to build a raft.
His initial goal was simply to help other Black people secure professional roles, but BPS has evolved to become much greater than that. It is now effectively the gateway for professional organisations across Scotland to access Black talent, and for Black individuals to access and excel in professional roles. Further it provides education to organisations, which is already making a positive impact by increasing the hiring and retention of diverse talent within large professional and public service organisations in Scotland.
The BPS movement came from a place of gratitude. Enoch’s goals are to help brightness and intelligence to shine, to help people grow into their roles and in many cases, into new ways of living and understanding new cultures too.
Listen to the podcast to discover the impact that Enoch and his team have already made, and to hear what their plans are for the future.
