Business Support Strategy for BAME Businesses



Sue Bedward, Founder and Director of MBL Academy is excited to join the live panel, on the upcoming CREME workshop on 'Developing a Strategy for Ethnic Minority Business Support in the West Midlands'.  Sue Bedward, Founder of MBL Academy said, "We have had numerous reports and need to take action now to ensure that racial equality and inclusion is embedded in all aspects of business & enterprise support standards. We want Business Support Professionals across all sectors to understand the valuable contribution made to the UK economy, both financially and socially and to reach out to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic business owners to proactively engage with them; understand their business needs based on cultural intelligence; and demonstrate inclusion in their professional practice".   In response to recommendations within the APPG BAME COVID-19 Response Report,  MBL Academy is working closely with SFEDI, the IoEE and the APPG-BAME Business to launch a 12 month pilot initiative, working in collaboration with business support professional services to address the findings from the report and implement its recommendations within the Business Support sector.   Our suite of enterprise support qualifications, include:- Business Support, Advice, Mentoring, Coaching or Consultancy can be found here.  


We want to encourage Business Support Professionals looking to raise their Race Equality standards within the business enterprise ecosystem to contact us if they would like to take part in the pilot study and receive recognition and a professional qualification as an inclusive business support provider. Our aim is to ensure the inclusion and diverse needs of ALL businesses are embedded in the high-quality standard of delivering a government recognised business enterprise qualification.  To attend the event on 16th March 2021 click here to register for your free place.
