Louisa Joseph enjoyed a career in a large corporate organisation for 17 years, starting in operations management and subsequently pursuing a rewarding career in a variety of HR roles including Talent management. In 2019 Louisa founded BAME to Boardroom in order to follow her passion for working with businesses to develop Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) talent into leadership roles; building confident, focused, high performing, and diverse teams, which in turn impact on organisational culture.

 

Louisa hosts an interview series called “We Need to get Comfortable Talking about Race At Work”, interviewing successful men and women of BAME backgrounds about their challenges and, more importantly, their successes and transformational breakthroughs in their careers.

 

As a result of this work she has developed a next level career coaching programme for professionals aspiring to move up in their careers called

“Be Visible, Be Confident”. A series of important inner and outer career modules, which every participant needs to apply in order to get out of their own way, and get the next position they want. The programme has also been developed into a 1 day Masterclass for larger groups.

 

On May 25th 2020 George Floyd, a black man, had his life taken at the hands of a white police officer, in Minneapolis USA. This moment was captured on video and has been shared on the world stage, repeatedly playing across all media outlets. The Black Lives Matter movement has over recent weeks dominated the airwaves demanding justice for George Floyd and all other lives lost at the hands of systemic oppression, addressing centuries of societal and racial inequality. As a result there is a thirst for knowledge and education on the topic of race and racism.

 

Louisa works with leaders in organisations to understand The Black Experience. Touching upon some of the challenges specific to being a Black person in the UK workforce; cultural and environmental factors and how these can hold Black professionals back in their careers
