Celebrating Black History Month at Clear Business
Meaningful conversations, supporting local businesses, and cake. What better way to spend Black History Month?
In October, we celebrated Black History Month with inspiring content and activities across all our sites. We highlighted the remarkable contributions of black individuals both from history and today. It was a month of learning, reflecting, and celebrating black culture and heritage.
In the spirit of giving back, our Dovecote office raised around £100 for the charity Stop Hate UK with company matched funding. This contribution supports the charity’s efforts to combat hate and discrimination, and we take pride in supporting this cause.
Our colleagues at Dovecote had a delicious experience exploring the rich flavours of traditional Jamaican cakes. These were baked locally at Old Trafford Bakery. Since the early 1960s, this small, local bakery has been supplying Caribbean hard dough bread, fruit buns and patties to the Old Trafford neighbourhood.
We also introduced a colleague-led recipe book that features a diverse array of recipes from various cultural backgrounds within Clear Business, celebrating our unique culinary traditions.
We received heartfelt colleague testimonials, emphasising the importance of Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (ED&I) in our workplace. Check them out below!
Black History Month reminds us that our commitment to Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion is an ongoing journey. At Clear Business, we strive to create a workplace where everyone feels valued and empowered year-round. Our ED&I journey is integral to our company culture, and we're dedicated to fostering an inclusive environment where every voice is heard and diversity is celebrated.
Our commitment to ED&I is a continuous journey that extends beyond one month.
