Top firms given four years to appoint ethnic minority directors

Measures introduced after review finds only 85 of 1,050 directors in FTSE 100 companies are from ethnic minorities Britain’s biggest companies have been given four years to appoint one board director from an ethnic minority background as part of a package of measures outlined in a government-backed review into the lack of diversity at the top of corporate Britain. Sir John Parker, the chairman of the mining company Anglo American, who conducted the review, said it should be a wake-up call for major companies that only 85 of the 1,050 director positions in the FTSE 100 companies were held by people from ethnic minorities. 12-10-17

Do Glasgow Police have a muslim officer residing in TEMPLE in Knightswood>? Absolutely barking mad. Yes Charlie, everyone you meet from an ethnic minority is an undercover policeman testing your reaction to ethnic minorities.
In London, Leicester, Luton and Slough, white Britons are a minority. Which city do you predict will be next? Does that mean that white people can claim ethnic minority status in areas where they are in a minority? If not, why not?
Why must every western country have the cult of diversity shoved down their throats? "Why are ethnic Europeans not allowed to be the majority ANYWHERE?" False premisse. Ethnic Europeans are the majority in every country in Europe " If current trends continue Sweden will be minority Swedish by 2050. " No it won't " London and Paris are already minority European" You must have a very "creative" definition of "european" socialistpb is correct. Immigration of coloured people was caused by colonialism and a "need" for cheap, uneducated workers. It never was a leftwing project
WHY DON'T US WHITES buy much from foreign firms or minority businesses.?
Acting Suggestions/Tips? Without an excellent resume, showing years of good-quality training and loads of experience, no-one is ever going to be interested in you. Would you expect to get a job as a head chef in a major hotel if you'd not had years at catering college and more years of experience as an apprentice in smaller restaurants? Acting is a business - the producers, directors and casting directors are in business to make money by making the very best product they can. And they aren't going to do that if they hire beginners with no idea about what they're supposed to do. On average, it takes seven years of training and experience before any genuine agency would accept you, and that's how actors get auditions - through agencies.
Is London going to be Britain's first "minority majority" city? Where there's more people of ethnic minority backgrounds than white people? There aren't more people from ethnic minority backgrounds than white people at all. 60% of Londoners are white and 45% are white British.

IPCC concerned about rise in ethnic minority deaths following police restraint Anne Owers, outgoing chair of the police watchdog, says the relationship between ethnicity and use of force must be looked at closely The official police watchdog says it is concerned about a rise in the proportion of ethnic minority people who have died after police use of force or restraint in the last eight months, the Guardian has learned. Of the 11 people who have died after a clash with police in England and Wales since April 2017, six are from an ethnic minority background, says the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

Are universities strongly associated with ethnic minority groups a thing outside the USA? This question asks about the history of why Howard University in Washington, DC, USA has remained a school whose student and faculty bodies are predominantly African-American. Do "historically [minority ethnic group]" universities exist in a meaningful sense outside the USA? For example, are there universities in Spain which are historically known for targeting or serving the ethnic Basque community? Are there "Historically Italian" universities in Argentina? Do the Ainu of Japan tend to predominate at a specific Japanese university? This question is not about whether specialized minority-serving academic institutions should exist, or what their social, political, or economic ramifications are, if any. This question involves something other than a request to churn and process statistical data - it is a question about social realities and social perceptions in academia.
