Research From 10×10 & Google Reveals Black Owned Businesses More Likely To Hire Diverse Teams

In the aftermath of the Black Lives Matter movement we have seen businesses across the U.K. being scrutinised for their lack of diversity. Whilst steps have been taken and commitments made one of the frequent rebuttals is a lack of industry data.

BERLIN (Reuters) – SAP will try to allocate 5% of its procurement spending to social enterprises and diverse businesses by 2025 to encourage greater social and environmental responsibility.

The German software group, which has 440,000 clients, appealed on Tuesday to other companies to join it in supporting small businesses owned and run by women or minorities.
