The Lens on removing the racial barriers to career success and enabling career opportunities for refugees

Richard Iferenta, partner at KPMG, joins Mursal Hedayat, co-founder of Chatterbox, to discuss how companies can bring about change on workplace racial equality

Richard Iferenta is a partner at KPMG and chair of Business in the Community’s Race Leadership Team. He joins host Oli Barrett this month to talk about his career and how companies can bring about change on racial equality in the workplace. He talks with Mursal Hedayat, named as one of #Forbesunder30 thanks to her role as co-founder of Chatterbox. This is an online language school with a difference – all the teachers are refugees. 

In this episode, they talk about re-invention, in work and in life and what everyone can bring to the table. They also cover how employers can support people from all ethnic backgrounds to succeed and the role that an organisation’s cultural intelligence plays in this.
