African & Caribbean Diversity

African & Caribbean Diversity was founded in 1990 by a group of black professionals whose shared vision was of a dynamic organization that would promote the entry, development and advancement of its members into business organizations. In doing this, it would make a positive contribution to the African and Caribbean communities and to the economy of the UK. Today, we are the leading membership organization of its kind in Europe.

Founded 2003
