E and B Hub: Concept Overview

The Society was inspired to roll out an EAB Hub in light of the COLL Index Report (executive summary) published in June 2015. It challenged the Society to find ways of making more use of its growing body of professionals to mitigate areas of need in the community.

Since its founding in 2010, the Society has gained access to scores of professionals who own viable businesses and are pursuing successful careers. Collectively, they have robust business expertise and knowledge of how to access and maintain employment in the private, public & third sectors.

Working through the EAB Hub these capabilities shall be harnessed to help the Black community, especially in London, to do the following:
  • Build awareness of public appointments; 
  • Grow the number of entrepreneurs;
  • Increase the effectiveness of employees in the workplace; and
  • Provide information, advice and guidance to young people seeking to showcase their talents in the job market.
