The Ethnic Minority Women's Forum

Cross-Government

Having recognised the underrepresentation of ethnic minority women throughout the Civil Service, Natasha, Ella, Aqsa and Rohini founded the cross-government Ethnic Minority Women’s Forum (EMWF) in 2020 to improve the progression of ethnic minority women in government. In just a year, they have grown EMWF's membership to more than 1,200 and actively engaged more than 300 allies. They have offered more than 200 members mentoring sessions with ethnic minority women in the Senior Civil Service, and provided application coaching to improve access to traditionally white professions. They launched active ally workshops picked up by teams across government, launched support sessions following Sarah Everard’s murder, and delivered numerous successful events including an International Women’s Day conference.
