EMpower Ethnic Minority Role Models 2018, presented by the FT

Following the success of the 2017 EMpower Ethnic Minority Leaders lists, we are back for a bigger and better 2018, with more senior leaders and more global reach. The EMpower Ethnic Minority Role Models 2018 will be split into three categories:

  1. 100 Ethnic Minority Executives
    The 100 Ethnic Minority Executives category will recognise 100 senior role models who are helping to make the workplace a more welcoming place for ethnic minority employees. Nominees for this category will be successful senior ethnic minority executives working up to three levels from the chief executive.
  2. 50 Ethnic Minority Future Leaders
    In this category, EMpower present 50 inspirational Ethnic Minority Future Leaders. Role Models who work at all levels of an organisation and are making a significant contribution to ethnic minority inclusion wherever they are placed in the company.
  3. 20 Advocates
    This category will look at individuals who are not ethnic minority themselves, but who are dedicated to creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace environment for ethnic minorities. Nominees for this category will be successful executives working up to three levels from the chief executive.

Leaders in the first two categories must be of a visible ethnic minority and all nominees must be based in the UK, Ireland, Europe*, USA or Canada.

*Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland. These countries are highly ranked in the OECD Better Life Index, which brings together measures of economic performance, social progress, and well-being.
