Our People

Meet the people behind Black Equity Organisation.

We stand on the shoulders of the giants who have fought anti-Black racism for decades in Britain.

BEO brings a committed and diverse staff team together with experienced Black leaders from a wide range of sectors and backgrounds, including law, business, media, culture, private and public sector in service to Black Britain. Our structure reflects the different expertise and talents of our richly diverse team.

Their long history of service to helping Black people and burning desire for fresh and radical changes in this country will enable us to achieve our vision.
