Event: Good for all

Posted in Events, Employee and Sustainability on 17 August 2020 By Steve Kemp, Co-Founder & CEO

Recognising the powerful impact of D&I on individuals, businesses and the community.

With diversity and inclusion at the top of the business agenda right now, how companies make a meaningful impact to their employees, communities and society as a whole is fast becoming a key challenge. Emperor has teamed up with the Aleto Foundation to tackle what is now a key component of any responsible business commitment.

The Aleto Foundation was created by a group of influential business and cultural leaders to provide significant lifetime opportunities for young people with high potential. Their focus is on identifying and developing the next generation of leaders from communities who have historically found it challenging to access jobs due to their backgrounds.  

The purpose of the event is to: 

  • Provide an insight into the great work that Aleto undertakes; 
  • For you to find out about their mentoring and leadership programmes; and 
  • Outline ways in which companies can support or get involved and the benefits that this will bring.


The event will be hosted by Aleto’s CEO David Villa-Clarke and Chairman Sir Kenneth Olisa. There will also be a chance to hear directly from alumni and how the foundation has benefitted them.

His passions lie in mentoring individuals, companies or NGOs to achieve their full potential, whether that be personal or financial.
