Earlier this year, Martin Currie announced its partnership with Black Professionals Scotland (BPS). Jennifer Mair, COO and Head of Inclusion, Diversity & Equality met with Enoch Adeyemi, CEO & Founder, Black Professionals Scotland, to discuss how both organisations would collaborate to tackle the diversity and inclusion challenges facing the financial services industry.
Enoch Adeyemi commented:
"Black Professionals Scotland is pleased to be partnering with Martin Currie, a global investment manager with head-quarters in Edinburgh. We look forward to all the progressive initiatives we will jointly work on in order to continue to make Martin Currie an attractive employer and a retentive employer to Scotland's Black community".
Jennifer Mair commented:
“Earlier this year I had the opportunity to meet Enoch and that was the start of our journey with Black Professionals Scotland. I’m excited that Martin Currie is working in partnership with BPS to better learn how to be a truly inclusive organisation and ensure Martin Currie is seen to be an employer of choice because of that. Over the coming months we will be embarking on an exciting series of events and interactions that will allow us to support each other in learning and growth and most importantly partnership with the Black Professional Scotland community.“
