Diversity Call for Shropshire Business Board Applications

November 10, 2020

Shropshire Business Board is opening its doors to applications, as part of a proactive drive to best reflect the business community it serves.

With over 20 Members, the Board is looking to increase its numbers by engaging with local business owners from the widest possible ethnic, age and gender perspectives. Their businesses can be any size but must have an SY postcode. This is a great opportunity to really make a difference for your sector.

“We’re proud to have a strong and vibrant Board” explained Shropshire Business Board’s Chair Paul Bennett. “However, we are aware that we serve a dynamic business community which isn’t wholly represented on our Board as yet and would like to address this by growing and diversifying this group of business leaders. This will help make us more aware of issues and opportunities facing those particular businesses and sectors in Shropshire”.

Board Meetings are currently held monthly and are remote during the Covid-19 pandemic, but face-to-face at Member-owned locations around Shropshire more usually. All members contribute their time and knowledge as volunteers and will be expected to engage with at least one SBB subgroup.

Applications forms can be requested by emailing shropshire-businessboard@outlook.com and the intention is to have the new cohort ready to attend the first meeting in 2021.
