Kingsley Napley's Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) & Allies network empowers members to come together to work towards an inclusive workplace in which everyone can meet their potential without fear of discrimination.
The network allows individuals to share their experiences whilst receiving support from others. We strive to implement solutions to issues which affect BAME people in the workplace. We recognise that BAME employees need to feel that their views and experiences are understood and recognised. Our overriding objective is to promote an inclusive and positive culture at Kingsley Napley.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY 2020: BAME heroines who exemplify #EachforEqual
Drawing from the strength of shared experiences, women around the world have been uniting in common struggles such as sexual and domestic violence, pay inequality, reproductive autonomy and climate change. While great leaps forward have been made and women-led movements have been gaining unprecedented attention and support , minority ethnic women are often left behind as these struggles are compounded with the intersection of their race/ethnicity and gender.
Holocaust Memorial Day, on 27 January 2020, will mark 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz, where more than a million people perished in gas chambers, most of them Jews. The day is internationally marked in remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust and other appalling acts of genocide, including later atrocities in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur, and to recognise that the lessons of the Holocaust are still relevant, especially at a time when racism and extremism is on the rise across Europe.
