Empowering Diversity in the Workplace

We are Unity, an internal voluntary-led group that focuses on true inclusion for all but with an emphasis on equality for Black, Asian and minority ethnic team members at Greene King. We’re led by people from all kinds of jobs, from all parts of the business and from all different backgrounds; some members of the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic community, some allies and some who are focused on learning more. We’re all united on making a difference.
