Rise (Black, Asian and minority ethnic)

Last reviewed on 20 December 2018

The Rise Network is building a supportive community for colleagues from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds.

Working with various areas of the business to raise awareness and knowledge of the depth and richness of different BAME cultures, it encourages inclusion among all of our colleagues.

Organisations that are diverse and inclusive make more profit than those who aren't. We want to help create a more ethnically diverse Co-op to better meet the needs of the future - and the communities we serve.
