Following the EMEA and SSA professional development summit ‘Turning Point’, Google committed to redouble their efforts in cultivating a more inclusive workplace. They wanted to instigate a tangible change and combat the underlying feeling amongst Black employees, that they could not succeed at Google. BGN (The Black Googlers Network) came to UpSkill Digital to devise a workshop that would ultimately provide the tools and framework for Black employees to feel empowered within the organisation.
During the UK’s first lockdown, it became clear to the Emerging Talent team at HSBC, that Black And Minority Ethnic graduates’ prospects within the organisation were being negatively impacted. Among other things, graduates could no longer rotate to other departments, which meant less exposure and impeded career progression. HSBC needed a solution and came to UpSkill Digital for help.
The launch of a new programme aimed at providing best in-class training to 300+ EU small to medium news publishers on digital transformation topics. The workshops aim to help organisations learn how to build a sustainable news ecosystem and make strides in transforming their publication in a digital-first world.
