Welcome

What are the EMpower Ethnic Minority Role Model Lists?

The EMpower Ethnic Minority Role Model Lists are a powerful reflection and celebration of the incredible achievements of people of colour in the business community throughout the UK, Ireland, Europe, United States and Canada. Lists are published annually and showcase 100 Ethnic Minority Executives, 15 Advocates and 50 Ethnic Minority Future Leaders.

There are three categories to nominate in:

  1. 100 Ethnic Minority Executives

100 senior people of colour who are leading by example and removing barriers on the pathway to success for ethnic minority employees. Nominees for this category are working within three levels from the chief executive within large organisations, or are leaders of smaller organisations.

  1. 50 Ethnic Minority Future Leaders

50 inspirational people of colour who are not yet senior leaders in an organisation but are making a significant contribution to ethnic minority inclusion at work.

  1. 15 Advocate Executives

Senior leaders who are not people of colour but dedicated to creating a more diverse and inclusive business environment for ethnic minority employees. Nominees for this category are working within three levels from the chief executive within large organisations, or are leaders of smaller organisations.

Nominations now closed for 2019!
