BTEG's Patrons

Iqbal Wahhab, OBE
Founder of Tandoori Magazine, and multi-award-winning restaurants The Cinnamon Club and Roast

Having for many years chaired a government advisory group looking at ways of reducing the ethnic minority employment rate gap, it has become clear to me that whilst we must maintain pressure on Westminster and Whitehall to deliver a fairer and more equal access to opportunities for all, real change will happen elsewhere. That means businesses proving the diversity of their workforce across all levels of their companies. And it means empowering new generations of entrepreneurs with the confidence and skills to become forces for change. BTEG has been delivering on both fields for 25 years and that’s why I’m proud to a Patron.

Greg Clark CBE

I am proud to support the work of BTEG. BTEG works hard and effectively to improve the work and enterprise opportunities of young black, Asian and minority ethnic people. There is discrimination and disadvantage in the way our economy operates, but tackling these barriers is possible if imaginative work is done. BTEG works directly with people, and supports them to succeed. I have known the BTEG team since their start up 26 years ago. I greatly admire the staying power and constant innovation in their work.
