BHA PHILANTHROPIC MISSION
Creating a positive social impact is at the heart of all that we do. We are strong believers in giving back and are committed to ensuring that people from diverse backgrounds have access to a wide range of opportunities.
BWAM & ENCIRCLE
We support both Black Women in Asset Management and EnCircle as both organisations work to support the development of the Black talent pipeline within the financial services industry and beyond.
10,000 BLACK INTERNS
Michael Barrington Hibbert co-founded the 10,000 Black Interns initiative, designed to help transform the prospects of young Black people in the United Kingdom by offering paid work experience across a wide range of sectors. The initiative provides training and development opportunities, as well as creating a sustainable cycle of mentorship and sponsorship for the Black community.
SOCIAL MOBILITY TASKFORCE
Michael Barrington Hibbert is one of a group of cross-sector leaders from across the financial and professional services industry that as of March 2021 has been appointed to the Government backed City of London Corporation Socio-Economic taskforce.
The taskforce seeks to increase socio-economic diversity at senior level across the UK. Challenging the continued lack of progression for those from non-professional backgrounds, the task force will also explore how this intersects with other facets of diversity including gender, race, and ethnicity.
