Nominations are open for this year’s Black British Business Awards, an annual event that celebrates the achievements of some of the country’s top corporate bosses and entrepreneurs.
Now in its eighth year, the awards highlight “commercial excellence” among black professionals in six areas: arts and media; consumer and luxury; start-ups; financial services; professional services; and STEM (science, tech, engineering and maths).
A “rising star” and “senior leader” award will be presented for each category during a digital ceremony in October.
Sophie Chandauka, co-founder of the awards, said: “This is a community that has remained resilient and focused on contributing to the UK economy in the face of a pandemic, racial unrest and personal pain. This is our time to reward and recognise these unsung heroes.”
