Black History Month Speakers

Every October, virtual Black History Month speakers are booked to honour and celebrate Black experiences, opinions and achievements. It is vital for workplaces to celebrate this month, to recognise the feats made by equality advocates and improve the diversity initiatives within their own companies. When booked for events, these speakers both educate attendees on the lived experiences of their peers, and empower audience members with their stories of determination.

To book a Black History Month speaker, contact a booking agent either by phone or our online contact form to discuss your requirements.

Black History Month is an important reminder of the racism that has defined our past, and the discrimination still rife in society.

With 60% of Black and Minority Ethnic workers reporting unfair treatment in the workplace due to their race, business leaders must eliminate discrimination and improve inclusion in their company.

Armed with inspiring stories, academic knowledge of Black history and a passion for equal rights, our virtual speakers believe that diversity should not be a single objective, but standard practice. By booking a Black History Month speaker, you will benefit from their leading expertise that is guaranteed to leave a lasting impact on audiences.
