A new work experience programme has been launched to encourage more black students to apply for top jobs in finance firms.

The aim is to break the pattern that has seen very low numbers of black staff hired by big finance companies.

Twenty Bristol employers have taken on 46 new interns, all of them black students, as part of the pilot.

“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” – Harry S. Truman

A team is not just people who work at the same time in the same place. A real team is a group of very different individuals who enjoy working together and who share a commitment to working cohesively to help the organization achieve its common goals and to fulfill its purpose. Most likely, they are not all equal in experience, talent, or education, but they are similar in one vitally important way, their commitment to the good of the organization.


Can the Caribbean Take Advantage of Global Supply Chain Disruptions?

The pandemic has caused global supply chains, particularly between America and China, to buckle. This has led to shortages in stores and a jump in prices for some consumer goods. One potential solution for American companies is to look nearer to home for their manufacturing, instead of Asia.

Roberto Álvarez, the minister of foreign affairs of the Dominican Republic, joins Altamar hosts Peter Schechter and Muni Jensen on the latest podcast episode to explain the relatively unknown concept of “nearshoring,” the relocating of previously Asia-dependent manufacturing supply chains to geographically closer regions. In the case of the world’s largest market, the United States, nearshoring represents a big opportunity for countries in the Caribbean and Central American regions.

Do white founders in Africa have an easier time getting capital?

It’s not a new story … inequity in African venture funding … but new actors have solutions…
“By having inequity in funding, Africa’s startup environment is missing out on a lot of talent, and losing out on building many great companies….local people ….are best-placed to provide fitting solutions to local solutions.
Funders such as Future Africa collective and any others that understand the unique challenges that local founders face in raising capital could play a key role in building the continent’s next startup giants.”

African Unity continues


When you are a leader, you are privileged to be in a position where you can direct, shape, and focus people’s potential to a specific result. When you are given the responsibility to lead, you are given an awesome opportunity to influence many people’s lives positively; a responsibility you should never take for granted.

Humble Leadership doesn’t mean you think less of yourself.

It means that you think about yourself less and you think of your team more”.
