Half of Black women in senior management have resigned ‘due to racism at work’

A new survey has revealed the impact of discrimination and racism in the workplace faced by Black women in senior roles.
The report, conducted by non-profit organisation BWIL (Black Women in Leadership) Network, found that nearly half (45%) of Black women working in white-collar jobs in the UK believe they will be overlooked for promotion despite having equal competence as a non-Black female colleague.
The survey of 250 professional Black women across various industries, found that four in 10 (44%) Black women do not believe they are offered the same career advancement opportunities as their non-Black female colleagues.
Two thirds (68%) reported experiencing racial bias at work. This figure rose to 84% of Black women in senior management positions.
