The Black Inclusion Group is a cross SBA working group jointly set up by ChBA, COMBAR and TECBAR. Its remit is to investigate and issue an advisory report with recommendations on enhancing outreach to and recruitment, retention and progression of ethnic minority barristers, with a focus on Black (African and African Caribbean and mixed Heritage) barristers in the Commercial, Chancery and Technology and Construction Bar. It is supported by the Bar Council’s Race Working Group. The Group aims to publish its report in Spring 2021.
The Group is currently in the information and data gathering phase of its work which includes analysing data from the Bar Council, conducting surveys (which are shortly being sent to Chambers and individuals) and confidential round table discussions. Further updates will be provided in due course but if you are interested in supporting the Group or providing input please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
