*A note About Language

We recognise that language about race and ethnicity is highly personal, constantly evolving, and should seek to uplift and empower people rather than marginalise them. The terminology we use is based upon canvassing the views of our investees, including reference to the Diversity Guide – Race and Ethnicity produced by bthechange in 2024. We equally acknowledge that umbrella terms like “Black” and “Asian” include people with different ethnicities.
