About Black Professionals United Kingdom

Our journey began in 2016 with Edinburgh Black Professionals, a networking platform fuelled by engaging physical, speaker-led events. Since then, we have expanded to cover the whole of Scotland as Black Professionals Scotland, with a growing membership across major cities and towns, boasting expertise in Tech, Finance, Art, and more.

Today, we proudly extend our reach to the rest of the UK as Black Professionals United Kingdom.

Our expansion into the rest of the UK as Black Professionals United Kingdom was driven by our commitment to addressing the unique obstacles faced by Black professionals in various industries. We recognise the importance of creating a safe space where our members can share their experiences, seek support, and connect with like-minded individuals who understand their journey.

Our updated platform has been designed with both individuals and organisations in mind. It seeks to harness the power of diversity and inclusion, which are essential for success in the workplace
