Kathy Quashie, Chief Growth Officer, Aimie Chapple, CEO Of Capita Experience, and Eileen Lewis, Performance & Development Officer, have all been recognised in the Empower Ethnic Minority Role Model Lists.
At Capita, we believe that creating a workforce that reflects the diversity of our communities drives greater effectiveness in decision-making through diversity of thought, and helps us deliver better for our clients. It’s also, quite simply, the right thing to do. That’s why we’re thrilled that the Empower Ethnic Minority Role Model Lists have recognised three exceptional Capita leaders for their contribution as diversity and inclusion role models.
The Empower Role Model Lists showcase leaders who are breaking down barriers for people of diverse backgrounds within global business. Kathy Quashie, our Chief Growth Officer and Chair of Embrace – our employee network for race and ethnicity – has been listed at number fifteen in the list, recognised for her many years of exceptional professional achievement and continuous dedication to diversity and inclusion (D&I). Aimie Chapple, CEO of our Capita Experience Division has been recognised at number twenty in the list of D&I advocates for her ongoing championing of diversity in business. Eileen Lewis, a performance and development consultant in Group HR, was recognised as a future leader for her exceptional work in launching RISE, our new leadership programme for colleagues of Black or minority ethnic heritage.
The recognition of Kathy, Eileen and Aimie is particularly positive as we continue to work on our targets for Black and minority ethnic leadership. Capita has committed to achieving 13% ethnic minority, including 3% Black, in our senior leadership levels by the end of 2025, and we are working hard to drive progress towards this goal. It is the work of leaders like Kathy, Aimie and Eileen, along with the inspirational support of our employee networks and our Black Lives Matter Advisory Group, that is creating the platform for us to succeed.
